Treasure Island

Waltz For Zizi

(7 march 1988)

I Remember You


I remember you, your mouth
pressed against the left side of
my chest, whispering to my heart
that you want to make love to me.

I remember you, your pride
taking my hands and placing
them, on your naked breasts.

I remember you, your eyes
pouring into mine, your colour,
as I was making love to you.

I remember you, your breath
touching my left cheek and
my neck, heavy and warm.

I remember you, your lips
opening to my tongue,
a wet and red world.

I remember you and me, naked,
holding hands and starring
at the same blue ceiling.

but then...

I remember you, leaving me
and saying I shouldn't blame myself
because you cannot love me.

I remember you, calling me on the phone
after a year, to make sure it isn't your fault
that I failed to graduate, to become doctor.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
