Everyday was something different
That I found in you – that I loved.
But, fading fast like amber sunsets,
Our endearment didn’t last long.

You were so soft and gentle,
Fragile like a jasmine bloom,
Or like your favorite cup of white tea.
And like a bitter orange, I betrayed you.

I never meant to crush you –
Like trampling on leaves,
Or cracks in your favorite cup
Cup of white tea.

So Calmly
Underneath my radar. . .
Time to strike?

Heart Blossoms
Dark green with red patches. . .
Well disguised.

Mellow smoke
Slowly burning passions. . .

Thick Venom
In darkened aloeswood. . .
Such is love.

Black Orient (Bulgari) | Fragrance Poetry

Fragrance Poetry inspired by Black Orient from Bulgari.

Like leather laced with lava-lake,
I bit into the bitter bud.
It yanked my youth of yesterday
To Make a man from mud.

Riddled with resins and rum,
I swallowed the sachet of spice.
Once dredged and drained, was done,
Lifting this leper to life.

By fire, free-men are formed:
Chasten a cherished child.
Through tears and terrors, he’s torn.
But after smoke and smolder. . . he’ll smile.

I just wanted to say I had a lot of fun writing this one. I like to play around with difference styles of poetry, including free-form. But I threw a bunch of techniques in this one – rhyme, rhythm, alliteration and symbolism. A nice contrast from the one I wrote before this – “Wood Essence” – which was barely written as poetry. But hey, why not change things up?

Unfortunately, Black Orient from Bulgari was a limited run and now discontinued. So, my poem may be the only way you can ever experience it. Read Secret Garden from Aftelier. © 2020, except where noted otherwise. All rights reserved.
