Lavender

I know my tastes are not as exquisite

or sophisticated but I prefer books

to brands. I just have that outright

spontaneity of life that others leave

behind.

I met you at that cafe because it is

oh so quiet

not Starbucks love,

but intimate as two strangers could be

a perfect place to let out the demons

that type away in a fury.

You smell so good and I have my

pheromones to attract you with

while cute Arlette, from France,

has lavender  cream on

that reminds you of

a naked woman long forgotten.

I observe everything too,

I write and everything comes

back to me

in flashes

sometimes years later

something I overlooked today

will haunt me tomorrow

and even though I am jittery from

overthinking, giving up

my power

and caffeine excitement

the truth is

you look so handsome

sitting across from me

and I truly adore your eyes

so much so

that I forgot

to give you my gift.

I love buying you a cup of coffee

or a beer

you do not owe me a thing

it is my absolute

pleasure

to be with you

for a few minutes

of your time

in your hectic day.

After all, you are passing

through

and Montrealers should be friendlier.

 

These moments of hellos and goodbyes

make me sad to leave you

and so happy to have seen you

walk through those doors.

A bientot.

    1. Thank you, Eric. The most addictive part of social media is reading comments on my work, positive or negative…I read everyone’s comments and try to work harder at being the best. I feel like there is so much more to write and say that there is never enough time to write it in. Grateful for your lovely words. xo
