don’t wait for me please find another lover

 

Don’t wait for me

Please find another lover

I’m riding camels with the Bedouins

Watching the orange sunset coiling

Like Cleopatra’s snake over the desert

We’ll enter Alexandria by morning

The day Mark Anthony committed suicide.

 

Don’t wait for me

Please find another lover

I’m in the Île de la Cité on Friday the thirteenth

The Friday which forever will be feared

The smell of burning flesh is choking me

The Knights Templar are shedding tears.

 

Don’t wait for me

Please find another lover

To dress your heart in Gaultier perfumes

The ghosts of your ethereal caresses

Will murmur melancholic poems in the fumes

Rising eternally in spirals

On the forgotten lover’s tomb.
