Fleur de lune

head1
La nuit bleue se lève,
C’est l’heure des rêves.
Mon cœur à l’écoute
Se sent pris de doutes
Sur le sens de l’amour.
Le monde semble sourd
Quand ma douleur je crie.
Mon ami, je vous prie,
Soyez ma réponse !
Car je vous l’annonce,
Je suis votre question,
Brûlante de passion,
Toujours je me pose.
Éclairez ma cause
Avant qu’en temps certain
Ne tombe le matin.
Plato_Silanion_Musei_Capitolini_MC1377
Je vous dirai tout,
Douce et tendre enfant,
Car je suis à vous
Éternellement.
Le songe est si doux
Quand vos yeux brillants
S’accrochent à mon cou
Si passionément.

Le long d’un sentier qui ondule comme une caresse, je découvre les fleurs les plus belles, celles que je n’avais jamais pu approcher. Doucement, tendrement, je m’approche et je m’incline pour respirer leur parfum puis déposer un baiser sur leurs frêles corolles.
Sous les fleurs se cache la poésie qui n’ose dire son nom, celle des sentiments suprêmement niés.
