A Poem: Paris. The Essence of My Urge.

Café Mabillon and Paris are one
the essence of my urge
To explore and test the limits
of a woman still in search

For happiness and peace of mind
so lost in desperation
A decade full of emptiness
Vincent, my inspiration

Oh how he romanced me away
as only French can do
So elegant a gentleman
he has no freaking clue

The peek he gave me into life
and France, the south, the sun
The quality of sunny days
that summer, so much fun

8 Years ahead I am again
café au lait, the same
My roots of moving out for good
all hidden in his name

Forever grateful I will be
though he will never know
My life has changed, all peacefully
his everlasting glow

On which I float and leave myself
feel what a day should bring
My Paris is so dear to me
at last my heart can sing

Again the song of Summer Love
though broken hearts remain
Yet love deserves an endless chance
I'm open to the pain

Of new and lovely butterflies
the touch, the feel, the yearn
The knowledge of uncertainty
but I've deserved and earned

The right to romance me away
to gracefully seduce
Who knows what Paris has in store
yet I'm the one to choose

To end my night alone again
though dinner was paid for
A toast to in dependency
to empty sex no more

Cause you can wine and dine and pay
and sweep me of my feet
It's more I need, so trigger me
if not you're merely sweet

So thank you very much monsieur
for making my night out
In Paris, Kong and Mabillon
exciting without a doubt

Signed: Escobana (who is back in her game:-)

Ooohhh Deergha....

You're too good to be true with so much comments left on my poems already! I'm still responding to my new followers where as you keep lifting me up by leaving your graceful words again and again.

Paris would be my second home if it was not for the horrible climate. Yet, I have a friend over there who can swap places with me anytime of the year.

So if I need some romance in Paris, I call him up and he enjoys the warm weather in Valencia. If India would not be so far away, swapping houses would be a great experience!

Love to you too...Escobana

I could almost hear Edith Piaf behind these lines. The beauty, the air of seduction Paris must offer, comes alive here.

That's a beautiful compliment! Thank you....Edith Piaf, her voice....I love how she sings! Paris in Summer is now on my mind...I should book another weekend and find my favorite chair in Café Mabillon:-)

What a wonderful warm flowing poem, full of heartfelt aspirations for a future and for a romantic city that oozes possibilities. Paris is a beautiful city, and I loved every second I spent in France when I went there with a companion. Vive la hub.:)

Merci beaucoup Astra Nomik!

Paris is definitely a city I love spending time in, just like you did. Somehow it's a city that either sticks with you or you never come back again. I need to see 'my Tour Eiffel' every once in a while.

Vive la France and thanks for stopping by:-)
