Moez Ben Meftah

You Remember?

So sweet you were that night
The sea breeze was so tender
And the full moon so bright
Much of that past will linger
And sure we will always write


When you screamed and I held you so tight
And you're scared of the neighbor's dog Simber
We met, strolled and sat on the bridge at night
And the words we said soothed the agony of September
The passersby were dry like geometry and algebra


When you invited me for a spicy diet
Your mates Sue and Fat left the chamber
We did not eat anything, never did we bite
Though I liked your meat, you fancied cucumber

When we had a Tunisian luscious night
We danced amidst sweet dreams in summer
And the landlady felt our dazzling love's light
Your serene eyes were glowing like fresh ember

When you lied on my knees quite quiet
And your Marlboro smelled like amber
And I would tend to fondle your apples right
Then I'd stifle my whim, I'd bite my finger

When we passed by the Hungarian student
Held silent in the arms of Hadi Chamber
And you said shame on him and his svelte
And I wished we fell right in a hot slumber


Then I took you home after midnight
And the way without Hester were somber
I dashed hot verses in the sense that I might
Wake up in the morn and find the missing member

When I bought you the best gift of delight;
Two lovers cuddling each other in a river
You took my present yet there would come a night
I recall its script 'I'll always…' the rest I can't remember

When I gave you a necklace in brown light
You were in white blouse, a stripped skirt under
And your perfume was Tresor Midnight
Your word 'rupture' was tears and thunder

And you wiped my tears and stifled my fears
I feared lest the apple be cut before it is ripe
And we went apart though we stayed near
And I could not help it, crying hard that type

When I had Betty's dry Malibu and got right
And all friends danced on the Lyrics of Timber
Then you rushed out and cried out of sight
Your eyes poured as the rain of December

When we made for the car boot's, we were eight
We bought antiques and second hand nick-nacks …
You did not like mates to see your trifle plight
You bought a deficient clock with no number

When we used to waltz in Debenhams's site
And in our pockets just a quid or a fiver
We relished seeing the world at height
Your heart was an edenhams and moreover

You remember London farewell party
The day we travelled to Thames with Betty
And met all sweet friends round nine thirty
The first time we had sailed to an almighty

We met our gorgeous Guilford teachers
Who made us feel beings of same features
Not poles apart as stratas of misery and riches
Hence prof Mathew danced with Arabian creatures

When the intractable spirits went in disarray
And the zeal of love sprang as foolish bray
The Sousse babe gave in to the blowjob array
All of a sudden the chaste Trad kissed Jay

Oh how hard to cry on the tone of Mayada
And the Tower Bridge looms miming bye
And the thickening fog over Thames delay
Any hope to get into Eden or approach nearby

    Oh, thank you so much for the comment, I love it. To be honest, it so happens that we get adrift within an intractable whirl of emotions to the extent that we become a entities of zealous ferocious cells insisting to be rendered into a decipharable schema. There is no outllet for that better than a poem. When you get in that orbit, it is words that dash themselves live and dewy and it is not us who strive to utter them meaningfully. Many thanks Hazel Durham.

    Thank you Col Mohammad for reading my poem and commenting upon it. To be honest, it is delightful to write and more pleasing to read comments about what you write. These comments, for sure, are more moving when they are written with sincerity. Mr Mohamed you are a great sincere poet. I promise I will much more of your versification and I hope you will read many more of my rhymes. All the best.
