Dark Nostalgia - Poem by Solene O'Brien

Thinking wild, thinking of everything, that I love
We, were both just a child, sensing everything, for a short while.
Maybe the days we have aren’t long, living apart for far too long
I close my eyes and what do I see
The way you laugh, and the tears we had.

Formal and charming, dark nostalgia alluring
Scents so classical will send me insane
I hope someday that we will meet again.
Soft yellow pale blue, dripped from my mouth when I tasted you
Colours, that you were raised in
I tell them, all about him.

Feeling alive, feel alive with me, give heaven a try
Young, sweet smile, I know if I were God, you’d be my favourite child.
Maybe the days we have aren’t long, living apart for far too long
I close my eyes and what do I see
The way you laugh, and the tears we had.

Salient and haunting, light shirts and clothing
I’m in love, with your cerebral mind
And the lateral part of you inside.
Sharp jaw and grey, skin that drives me crazy
Fresh, my boy you’re guiltless
I hope your passion releases us.
You sound like a song Earth would create, brown and velvet
There’s something romantic in a foreign male
The Swedish you speak, so virile.
Sharp words but modest, genius in the making
I love you, I love you, I love you.
