A cigarette long...


Around the corner
we met
me and him
the man who is out of time
"Today you are delicious",he said
"in your black dress"
I confess
I wished if he stayed longer
If he exhaled me a little softer
If he had said more stuff
If he hadn't been that sweet and tough
For a second
I wanted to be his last picked up cigarette
to touch his lips
then he would quit
For a second
I wanted to be his lips
to sink in mine
and melt in my shivering dips
when i saw him drift
but i accepted that meeting
as it was
surprising
capitalizing
summarizing
us in a few words
and a river of silence
a meeting that was as old as his cigarette
the one he lighted with my burning sigh
as i felt him coming close by
and for a while
I prayed it would last
as long as was the past
in my lips he inhaled its smoke
within his fingers my laughter broke
trembling
like a shade of light
exalting
at his fading sight
rushed into my veins running
as he crashed it with his feet,humming
"I do envy that black dress you wear"
leaving me bursting in a blushing stare
he left!
what a theft!
he took my breath away
as i childishly sway
holding my roses
and his heart
rewinding in mine the meeting,
that lasted only a cigarette long.

Great energy to your lines. Clear imagery too. Trying to quit smoking, again, for like the thousandth time, so thanks for reminding me, Abeer! lol Just kidding, great work my friend :)

Nevine said...

How I loved your play with the cigarette against that moment... so precious... moments we would like to hold on to forever... but never can.

But you are yet in your black dress... and ever will be. We are not so easily forgotten, you know. ;-)

So lovely to awaken to two lovely thoughts from you at my place, this morning, and the windswept hair across the face. Thank you for joining me, Abeer. It will be my absolute pleasure to visit you here.

I send you lovely thoughts and warm hugs from across the oceans and seas. And, would you please kiss my beautiful Cairo 'Good Evening' for me? It is morning where I am, but I know it is already evening there.

Hugs,
Nevine

Claudia said...

beautiful - sensual - and a great idea to describe the moment..

Loch Rob said...

You write passion so well. Too bad that cigarette cannot last longer. However I do know, there is something about a black dress.


My attempt.

You do have your pulse on the human heart, dear girl. I always come away, with my heart bursting open, remembering that lingering fleeting moment -- so exquisite so divine. A sensitive soul you have. I am so enjoying your poems, and your visits to mine. You are a Desert Rose blooming.

Joanny
have a great week end.
