Dreaming in French …

Parisian dreams

It’s only a dream, just a candy,
almost a promise of togetherness,
but it will be real, soon.
Like beats racing inside raindrops,
Spring will come and I will fly to
the town of all couples in love.

My eyes even closed will meet
your smile, the miles melting.
” Hola bella” – I will hear you say
and will let you hug me so tight that
the Armani cologne you wear
will blend with the scent of my heart.

Your hands- my shelter at night,
will be ready to take me
somewhere safe, somewhere with
no worries and dismay.
A small hotel on a quiet street,
a view that will make us feel at home.

Coffee shop. Two cups of cappuccino –
one sweet and one bitter.
A walk to the tower of our dreams-
yours and mine same dream.
Lips, a mesmerizing kiss,
after endless and painful days away.

A whisper and your voice deep,
untold words from before,
pictures for the Christofle silver frames,
kept for the best moments in my life and
your “I love you”, I will remember even
after the expire date of “forever” comes …

    Interesting! I like the turn at the end. The expiration date on forever expiring. Then the memories will become even more poignant. Nice and romantic.

  7. Paula Tohline Calhoun Says:

    Once again, Blaga, you have transported me away from the computer screen, away from my chair, my house, this earth, and into the ether where love lives. Great, beautiful, delightful! Thank you for sharing even more of your heart than the scent. . .

    So romantic, and beautiful. You’ve got a way with romantic imagery. I like the last line, very beautiful yet realistic. Oh you make love sound so beautiful!

  12. Cheryl Says:

    Oh Blaga, I was already feeling hopelessly romantic this evening and now you’re poem has made it ten times more intense. As always, I love your imagery and beautiful choice of words. Bravo, my dear one.

    I am both smiling and am teary eyed too!
    This HIM that I had loved or I feel I did; he too said that he did, I haven’t been able to really feel for anyone anymore since then. I did marry but because I wanted to and not because I loved him or anything! Eventually, I did give myself away to him only to be thrown away in pieces!!
    Your words just reminded me both the stances- feeling bitter- sweet.

    I do wish to feel how it feels to be in love again- only I don’t feel for anyone anymore..

    Hugs n mega hugs
