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. © TheFragranceWriter.com 2020, except where noted otherwise. All rights reserved.

Don’t let me fall in love tomorrow;
I’m not prepared for another heartbreak. . .

You’re so uncomplicated – innocent.
My reputation’s of one rotations.
I love to go out strawberry picking
But it leads to sticky situations.

Please don’t wear that sweet perfume that I love –
Those little glasses and pink, pink lipstick.
Please conceal those baby-blue iris eyes.
If hearts collide, then what will happen next?

Please don’t let me fall in love tomorrow;
I’m not prepared to break your heart again.

Poetry inspired by the fragrances Day and Night from Fragrance One.

I hate the taste of caramel,
Particularly with vanilla,
Like the milkshake we first shared.
That summer night was just the start.

I hate the smell of peaches,
Like under the osmanthus tree
Where we met that day
You broke my heart.

I imagine us day and night;
Night and day.
But now all I’m left with
Is our memory.

I sniff your perfume from
this black bottle that I kept.
But soon you’ll be gone;
Just a few drops of jasmine left.

Why am I disingenuous?
I know I’ll always love you
I’ll always love the things
that remind me of you, too. . .
