La Vie En Rose

That old song
La Vie en Rose
Draws me in
At the end of this perfect day
The colour so redolent
Of all on display
I think I know
What the singer proclaimed
For a moment I’m her
On the streets of Paris
Another’s face, another’s name
Another’s flame

I live it
La Vie en Rose
Falling deep
Into perfect slumber, perfect sleep
The pink shimmering on my lips
My tongue
I am undone
And I will never be the same
Another’s face, another’s name
Another’s flame

(C0 Helen Valentina. 2020

  2. You did this so well, Helen. Growing up Édith Piaf was one of my favorite singers. (yeah I was a bit of a throwback) Brought back memories.
