These foolish things

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Foolish Things

I really like this song ever since I heard the original but I also enjoy Bryan Ferry’s version too.

Oh will you never let me be?
Oh will you never set me free?
The ties that bound us are still around us
There’s no escape that I can see
And still those little things remain
That bring me happiness or pain

A cigarette that bears a lipstick’s traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

A tinkling piano in the next apartment
Those stumbling words that told you
What my heart meant
A fairground’s painted swings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

You came, you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me
I somehow knew that this had to be

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings, but who’s to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

Gardenia perfume lingering on a pillow
Wild strawberries only seven francs a kilo
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

The park at evening when the bell has sounded
The ile-de-France with all the gulls around it
The beauty that is Spring
These foolish things
Remind me of you

I know that this was bound to be
These things have haunted me
For you’ve entirely enchanted me

The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations
Silk stockings thrown aside, dance invitations
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

First daffodils and long excited cables
And candlelight on little corner tables
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

The smile of Garbo and the scent of roses
The waiters whistling as the last bar closes
The song that Crosby sings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

How strange, how sweet to find you still
These things are dear to me
That seem to bring you so near to me

The scent of smouldering leaves, the wail of steamers
Two lovers on the street who walk like dreamers
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things
Remind me of you, just you

Full moon emotions

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Erogenous

Written on 21/4/08

It always happens at this time.
These feelings rise,
emotions are set loose.
A full moon
sending rays of light through my being,
thoughts of you,
your soft sensuality.
My senses are filled
with the scent of you –
the taste of your lips
the warm fragrance of your skin.
The softness of your skin
as it tingles with my gentle touch.
The feelings of desire
that fill me
as your body presses against mine
urging for a firmer touch
as your lips seek out mine,
tongues exploring
as hands flow around
bodies yearning for more.
Fingers touching those places
which send slight gasps
from moist lips
that are seemingly locked together.
The urging as naked bodies
slide against each other,
my hardness pressing
against your soft, warm moistness
seeking to enter
to be enveloped by you
to swell and pulsate
as matching rhythms of desire and wanting
ebb and flow
as bodies, minds and souls
fly as one in a passion
that only we can understand
as a full moon
takes my senses
on a trip of my love,
of my desire for you.
My most beautiful and wonderful woman
A woman who most men can only dream of
but who can fulfill
my feelings with joy
and elation.
