I’m not afraid to be me anymore. . .
Plucking courage just like saffron by hand.
I’m leaving all my past pains at the door
and finding beauty from the hurt, if I can…
like thorns with blooms, or oud from wounds.

  1. I think my fellow posters said it all, with direct and discerning word. Exciting , truly enjoyable poetry. Great effort too, in finding the display of words to describe the conflict, harsh but it must be true.

    Although,
    I’m left with a niggle of discontent in the form of a question…what on earth beseeched the expert creator of fragrance to produce this scent, besides, the name is outrageous- old luxury- , while there is a slight whiff in the air, the world is changing, moving and evolving

    That said,
    And detached, the hint at sweetness pervades the air.

    1. Oh no. I think there may be a misunderstanding. It’s Oud Luxuria – Oud being an expensive fragrance note taken for Aloeswood trees. Although the note itself is slightly old fashioned and one of the oldest notes I think. However, it’s also one of the most expensive and polarizing due to how strong it is and sometimes having a barnyard scent to it.

      Speaking of sweetness, it does have a hint of sweet berry in it

  2. Oh!!….I did a direct translation thinking Oud is Dutch for old. I suppose it being a scent for both a man and a woman there is a sharp contrast in aroma or fragrance. Quite an interesting mix. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
