Secret Garden (Aftelier) | Perfume Poetry

Poetry Inspired by the Perfume Secret Garden from Aftelier.

I lived a secret garden,
Where I could feel liberally.
My heart was soft and sweet –
Well rounded and strongly.
My soul was in full bloom
Like a jasmine vine
Decorated in an array
Of small, delicate flowers.

I was not unlike
The beasts of the earth,
Who feel purely, innocently
Covered from judgement.
In my mind and emotions,
My soul was strong, well rooted
And fragrant-like,
Like the Rosewoods of Brazil.

But the seasons changed.
Feelings and thoughts
Strange to me
Immersed my bewildered mind –
Muddled me –
Restless & uncertain.
They left me trying to manage –
to dictate –
my delicate senses.

But feelings are a garden.

[And all gardens need tending.
Feelings grow as they may,
But nourish them
With good water –
Good sun –
Good soil –
And pray their fruit grows sweetly].

I wanted to find a bouquet
to symbolize our old-fashioned love.
So I brought you blue heliotrope.
But you said you love Jasmine.
Yes, you are soft and smooth
like those petit, white flowers. . .
Maybe slightly sweetened
by an orange.
But I’m a wild. . .animalistic. . .

Or perhaps I’m just tossed. . .
like a grey stone of the ocean.
And your waves have crashed me.
Immersed me
in your high-tide.

I’m embosomed.
and your warm amber
is my tapestry.
