languor of love #poem #short prose

Clocks drip languor.
White drapesΒ undulate in the breeze of a faraway sea.
The fragrance of oranges blossoms in my hair.
Mysteries of the blue waters exude from your salty skin.
Moorish patterns engrave themselves onto my thighs.
Teardrops scent the air.
Our afternoons: never born, never allowed to die.

  1. I absolutely love this! Its got loads of emotive and sensual imagery and a signature uniqueness. Truly loved the line “White drapes undulate in the breeze of a faraway sea”
    It is reminiscent of floral snapshots that keep us glad in times that are shattered. I’m attached to this connectivity between unreality and the magical realism.

  3. Gli orologi gocciolano languore.
    Le tende bianche ondeggiano nella brezza di un mare lontano.
    La fragranza delle arance sboccia nei miei capelli.
    I misteri delle acque blu emanano dalla tua pelle salata.
    I disegni moreschi si incidono sulle mie cosce.
    Le lacrime profumano l’aria.
    I nostri pomeriggi: mai nato, mai permesso di morire.
