Dress Revisited

18 Mar

I posted this a year ago. A smaller audience then. I hope you enjoy

A Faded Romantic's Notebook

Girl in blue dress


One more glass and I will submit

to the memory of her dress.

Silk less smooth as the skin within,

and I’ve seen her wearing less.


But you never knew me quite this way

with my eyes so full of clouds.

Some black poison has ruined me

and the gown is now a shroud.


One more glass and I will resort

to softly whispering her name.

Writing words on my exposed pale wrists

in an attempt to hide the stain.


But you never knew me quite this way

With my body so stale and old.

I’ve tortured the flame of this candle

And its grey smoke kiss has left me cold.


One more glass and I will forget

the sweet memory of her dress.

She wore it for me one afternoon

when she still wanted to impress.

    Very sad I think. Powerful though.

    Drunk writing similar to drunk dialing? That is, if she were to read your page, as you read her dress.

      Smiles. Perhaps. I can’t remember if I ever sent it to her. Probably not. I am sensitive but not sentimental. Thank you for reading.

        Dahling, you remember. You remember all of it. Drunk or not, that dress is readily pulled to your pen, her skin to your mouth, your sensitivity an equal match to her sentimentality.
