A bloodless rose

She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her. I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her.
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

A bloodless rose

Let me forget the days with silent sunsets,
with violins that howl, sore and burning,
while on top of the emerald globe the gods
surrender to the infinity of a triumphant passion.

Let me forget that the wind has your voice,
your bitterness, your arctic glow,
in a universe of malignant apples and artificial legends,
where love is a primeval style of calligraphy.

Let me be free of the twilight with raw ashes,
of dreams burning under the breath of lonely dragons,
let me believe in the power of talismans,
so I can find a way to bring a dead rose back to life.

Never free

“What I’ve felt, what I’ve known never shined through in what I’ve shown. Never free, never me …”

Never Free

Inexperienced thirst,
torments of sorts,
transpired on pale skin,
life can no longer subdue
the agony, the intimacy.

Juvenile desires,
depleted, drained through
razors and pseudo bubbles,
the heart ignores dismally
the flames, the vows.

Peerless melody,
strings of unforgiven guitars,
elegance of  illusions left,
dreams that will never shine,
drifting minds, never free.

Skipping bureaucracy

Skipping bureaucracy

The devil dressed in the skin of a man,
I am sure,
he was born to drive me insane.
I demand without hesitation:
” Sign the papers for divorce!”.
” Baby, we don’t wear wedding rings”,
says he, with fake remorse.
Even better,
I will skip bureaucracy today
and tell him in a very simple English:
” Go to hell!”.
