ENFLEURAGE


He touched me with invisible hands
and sniffed me from far away
as i was a bouquet of flowers
as i was a scent ~ intense~in a garden

I walked carelessly dressed with the trees
inside the green and dark
clouded and safe
he stopped me as he swirled around me

And all my leafs were shaken
a whirlwind of green and dark blue
was coming out of me
i was a simple glossy leaf

Again, just to remember…..




He ask me ~just one drop from yours body~
~it is all i need to go away~
and lifted up his nose
resting already on my chest




I opened my flower and i gave to him one petal
when one single drop rolled down of my breast
smelling of fear ~ smelling of love~
he save it on your tongue and no more to say
he just swirled again and left me away

from my garden…from my scent….
