Remember you

Remember you

A Poem by Kesha
"

.....

"
Lay me under your skin,
Break me in half,
Bury me in your lungs
Breathe me in.

Lavender smells,
& it burns my nostrils
As I remember you.

Lavender hurts
& it burns my heart
As I remember you.

Purple colors
Flash pain across my eyes,
Purple colors
Leave marks on my arms.

Lavender perfume,
Lavender panties.

Where have you gone?
With those California eyes,
And a mouth so supple.

Why did you always smell of lavender?

Candles lit,
Lavender smells
As I remember you.

With my window wide open,
My heart is breaking,
With a breeze so fierce.

Lavender invades me again,
Lavender leaves me in crippling pain,

On my knees,
I beg you to

stay.

What sentiments so well articulated. Even the pain comes out with your dignity in place.

Thank you!
How this flows with such a beautiful, painful flow of memories. The scent of lavender, the one I always reach for in my garden, is so intense, so refined, and here it is connected to loving and losing and letting go. We can breathe in the fragrance of your sorrow.

Your longing sentiments are nicely doused in shades of lavender. I love the vivid details & the intense expression of feelings. I would prefer to use more different ways to express the color lavender (lilac, mauve, violet) so as to avoid this amount of repetition. But that's just my preference. Al in all, you've crafted this with feelings & imagery that come across intensely (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you so much! I rather enjoyed the repetition as it added to the intensity of the sorrow. ;)
Honest and strong needs and thoughts in the words. I felt the need and the want of the words. Thank you Kesha for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome Kesha.
I don't think you should beg her to stay, not if her lavender does such terrible things to you. I could really feel the hurt in your poem. Perhaps another flower will have a better effect. Keep going!

No problem :))
I love the use of lavender here, and the melancholy feel to it really spoke to me. Deep, tragic, and desperate.
Great job.
