Je Reviens


i will return 

says the perfume 

a promise in a 

bottle of midnight 

blue ….


today for the sake 

of old times 

she wore it anew 

with a pledge 


its fragrance is lasting 

it lingers ….


yes it lingers for you …

green floral 

with a hint of narcissus 

and a touch of English rose 

I suppose she is saying 

something as old as 

the Malvern Hills 


here for all time 


drenched in summer’s rain 

where there is love 

patient darling 

there is also pain

          • Doggerel Dave

            With you on love poetry. A sudden scent, fragrance can evoke (and has) a memory definitely not forgotten, just filed, from years back.
            Your poem served as that scent in absentia.

            • Cassie58

              Thank you so much DD for your review. Pleased my scented words evoked a lovely memory. Have a great Sunday.

                    At last .. I'm in .. just wanted to let you know I came by earlier (well yesterday actually) but was unable to leave even a trace of myself behind .. except for a like .. I was the first to leave a like .. and that by the way was a massive understatement .. my personal very most favouwritest scent in the whole wide world perfumedly wrapped up in a love poem .. most assuredly one of the best and what's more, you may never truly know how much my senses were tickled .. am tempted to sniff the screen .. thank you for posting Neville πŸ’œ

                  • Cassie58

                    Sadly my inefficiency at navigating this site on my phone has managed to lock others out too Neville. So pleased your senses were tickled.and I thank you for such a warm review. I have a bottle of this perfume on my dressing table. I might even wear it today. Make sure your day is happiness filled dear friend. πŸ’œ

                  • Cloie

                    Your poem is a beautiful reflection on memory, love, and the enduring nature of emotions. The imagery of perfume as a promise, with its lingering fragrance, is powerful and evocative. The mention of specific scents like narcissus and English rose adds a sensory depth to the poem. Wonderful!

                    • Cassie58

                      Thank you Cloie for such a beautiful review. I really appreciate you stopping by.

                    • rhmn_7

                      That beautiful scent still lives in the memories, doesn't it?

                      • Cassie58

                        Thank you so much for commenting. Yes the scent has special significance. So pleased you stopped by.

                          I love the way this is written without a specific narrator as if a unfaced voice is speaking form the beyond. The imagery is wonderful and the ending sublime
