Poetry inspired by the perfume Intense Cafe by Montale.

writing fragrance poetry perfume life love intense cafe montale

What if, dear, now and here, you stole my heart?
That it happened just as we sit apart?

What-oh-what is mixed in this coffee cup?
A strange elixir that’s altered my brain?
Mom would have said these feelings are insane. . .
But, my oh my, my minds already made.

Sorry. I must have been thinking out loud.
There’s just a “something” in the air that’s sweet.
Before you run away from crazy me,
Wonder if it’s not by chance that we meet.

How long till a rose drops its petals?
Life’s too short to give sudden denials.
