You my dear love, like a sceptic shock
entered my limbs and gave me a
a wasted kiss.
A lazy embrace which lay stretched
like hollow streets, hyper, hypnotic I ran
towards those sepia streets.
Time didn’t freeze, as it never does,
Yes! Sun will be the Moon tomorrow;
never doubt what the blind women say.
Wind withers on letting her raven hairs
down, making way for that barefooted
To descend coyly in the wedding gown
and embrace the Sun and the Sewage;
You and me in it’s sandy shroud.

A touch of the gothic and the romantic in this poem, Tanya. ❤
Drac, I was reading Charles Baudelaire when I wrote this poem, hence the poem!
That would explain it all right. 🙂

I love the febrile imagery and syntax of this: it shakes up the morning —
I’m glad John you liked it, I like gothic poetry with dark themes. I was read Baudelaire and this idea came about 🤔
never read Baudelaire; will look him up this arvo and try a few in translation; don’t think my High School French will suffice 🙂
I enjoy his poems a lot along with stories by Guy de Maupassant , I also read translations. I only took two French classes …😑 in my life.
Loved this one!
I’m glad, thank you for your kindness!

You left me languidly delightfully

Hope I haven’t bothered you. I tend to be overly talkative.
