Poetic Essences

Don’t Dance

i was poisoned by tenderness
with the elixir of a haunting kiss

its curse, sits ghostly doodled
on all walls of the Château d’If

there, longs don’t dance anymore
but sing
(…along with sea’s smoke veil)

so don’t try uttering its saga, for,
it’ll rein you, to a smile, and wink

un p’tit je ne sais quoi

In the background, a song intensifies a moment. Imagination fuses sublimely, unchaining emotions. There’s something inciting. Words’ lips kiss inspirations. PoeticEssences spread ’em up. Humor. Love. Life. Music. Flash-Fiction. Micro-Poetry. Free-Verse. © Un P’tit Je Ne Sais Quoi
