the last love # love poem #poetry

I eat macaroons in the same coffee shop
Roberto’s guitar sells cheap dreams by the sea
young girls are ready for harvest like flowers of lust
I laugh…
I scratch poetry on a glass
I say the first love is French
you ask how’s the last
it smells raspberries, vanilla, and grass
you touch my left wrist
I play a few cards
red flowers bloom on your cheeks
your teeth peel the skin of my gloves
you walk into darkness
I seal you in wax
how’s the last love?
pray..
you shouldn’t have asked

  1. “I eat macaroons in the same coffee shop

    So much imagery, I don’t think I can even handle all of it. But I very much want to! 💯 👍🏻

  2. I get such a visual with your gorgeous descriptive phrases. Immediately transported to this French cafe. Teenagers flirting nearby while a woman remembers her experience with someone she once loved as she seals the envelope with her last words inside, to a man undeserving of her love. Thanks sweet Gabriela I will have this magnificent poetic scene in my head all day. Love and blessings my sweet friend. Joni💕💕

    1. Thank you so much hon. Your description is gorgeous. I am so thrilled you liked the piece. And yes… I’ll keep your words in my heart today. May love and sunshine be with you today 🤗🌸💕

  3. Good morning Amiga,

    Ay, good thing I don’t take a guitar with me to the beach. Wouldn’t want to be accused of singing cheap dreams.

    This was filled with dreamy images as you set the perfect mood. A beautiful piece of writing to entice and fill our lungs with beach air and vivid,serene images.

    What is the last love? Shouldn’t have asked. What an exclamation point to build curiosity & leave us desiring more.

    Bravo G. To quote Britney Spears, “Ooops, you did it again.”

    1. Good morning Drew.
      What a beautiful comment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your gorgeous words. You are very kind.
      Britney Spears? Haha! I’ll take that quote. Out of curiosity do you listen to Britney Spears? 🙂
      Have a beautiful day at the beach.

      1. Britney Spears? Not really. My musical taste is eclectic, but it doesn’t cross the Britney Spears line. You know the sounds here are all bachata and merengue. Very island vibe.

        Going to do a little reading on the beach. The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Hope it’s good.

        Have a good one G. Inspire the world.

      2. Indeed, I know the sounds there very well. Drew, I am afraid that is not a book for the beach. I did not read it, but… let me know.
        Take care and enjoy the waves.
        G.

      3. When it comes to laughter you can count on me. Really, care take of you Drew. Have a wonderful day.

    1. Aw.. Rob, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your words mean a lot to me. I hope your shoulder got better.

    1. Breathe, sweetie, because I want you to understand how grateful I am to you for your support and your beautiful words. Thank you so much, Bo ! Love to everyone.

  4. Your words always create such a vivid world for me. You put me in touch with such fond memories by creating powerful scenes to live in. You have inspired me on many occasions and I will articulate my thanks in a blog post scheduled for tomorrow. Please be sure to visit! Much love! ❤

    1. Aw.. Brad.. you brought tears in my eyes. thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and support.

    1. I am so humbled and honored by your words. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. They mean the world to me.

    1. Did I just get hired? 🙂 I promise you nobody knows how to make movies like I do 🙂 Nobody knows how to make things up like me. I’ve been doing that since I was a kid 🙂
      Muchas gracias Francisco. I am so glad you liked the poem. It really makes me happy.
      Ten un buen fin de semana.
      Bisous 🙂

  6. a little detour on my walk takes me to a place such as this and become an observer in your thoughts. the poem is warm like a Tuscany summer, maybe I am just in love with your words.

    1. “the poem is warm like a Tuscany summer, maybe I am just in love with your words” Oh, this makes my night so beautiful Gina. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope you guys had a great beach day (that must have been yesterday). May your rest of the weekend be warm and beautiful like a Tuscany summer.
      xoxo

      1. we are enjoying our little break, went diving off the coast and now ready for bed time, yes it was a warm and gorgeous day.. Have a great Saturday G.

  7. Whimsical and beautiful. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 This is Carly from Message In Stanza. This is my new blog, My Ink Smears. I hope you will follow it. 🙂

  8. Well, this time it’s macaroons, and if you don’t mind, I’ll slip into this decadent scene and take a bite of one while I ask the question about this last love. I dare to. It is so deliciously scented, but there’s an undertow of mischievous vengeance and mystery (grass with the vanilla and raspberry) that I want to sit down and get to the bottom of. I’m not buying Roberto’s cheap dreams and I want to see the cards. Were the cards played right?

    My friend, again and again and again. You write these gems. How? Xoxoxo

    1. There are plenty of macaroons. You can have as many as you want.
      “It is so deliciously scented, but there’s an undertow of mischievous vengeance and mystery”
      All of the above 🙂
      “I’m not buying Roberto’s cheap dreams” I didn’t think you would.
      “I want to see the cards.” Oh, I wish I could show them to you. But I played all of them 🙂 🙂 🙂
      “My friend, again and again and again. You write these gems. How?” I make them up.
      Thank you so much for your delicious answer my dearest Rachel. You are fabulous.
      Sending you a package filled with all my love and the best macaroons ever.
      xoxoxo
      G.

      1. So, we’re not buying Roberto’s cheap dreams (last time I saw him I could have sworn he was wearing a suit?), but we most certainly going to eat these macaroons. I see you played all the cards, but I want to know who won. Certainly not Roberto.

        I can’t say enough how I love that bit of mischievous vengeance about you and your poems.

        Thanks for the macaroons. Next time I want to eat them in the coffee shop from the poem, ok? Love and hugs and friendship xoxox

      2. Haha! Who won? Oh, Roberto had no chance. I had four aces.I returned his suit🤗 He had a wet T-shirt and some cheap dreams only. We will go together in that shop sometimes. It will be fun.
        Till then before I go back to sleep I am sending you more macaroons. They are delicious.
        Macaroons and plenty of love
        💕💕💕💕💕💕

      3. Ahhh his dreams somehow seem more real when he’s dripping wet 😂😂. I’m glad you had such a good hand.
        I’m going to have those macaroons as a before bed snack. I’m sure to have sweet dreams now.
        💕💕💕💕💕

      4. I am so glad to hear that. I’ll send you more. Rachel did you notice that you and I can go on forever and make up an entire new world? Haha! You know what I mean.

      1. It will be my pleasure. As soon as my publisher does not need me anymore to work on the release of my new book I will go through your blog. Have a wonderful rest of the day evening.
        I would like to help everyone and I help as much as I can. But please keep in my mind that my followers get priority.
        xoxo
