Every Monday Ahead Of Us

I’m still in love with the dreams I let escape last night — now,

I have fairies sitting on my eyelids. My forehead against the pillow

Feels the weight of an entire world

Disappear little by little

.

I’ve been cursed — without you, my days

are blasé and so predictable.

I’ve been cursed — without you, I feel like

I’m attending my own funeral;

Even though

I don’t know if I still believe

In what you’d call love…

I want you to let me breathe in

Your unintentional inspiration

.

I want you and I to be

A collision of ecstasy. You and

I blend together perfectly

.

I’m still in bed; too far to reach your

Ready-to-be-kissed,

Flesh colored lips… Still,

Together,

We are ready to face

Every Monday ahead of us

.

The Yellow Scale (showing Charles Baudelaire) by František Kupka (September 23, 1871 – June 24, 1957), also known as Frank Kupka or François Kupka.

      1. I lie me down, with regrets at my feet. A feat of beat techno jazz at the door and just my imagination, nothing more. Nothing more dangerous.

    1. That’s absolutely true. Although I guess I’m one of the lucky ones — I don’t work on Mondays (at least I’m not working on Mondays during this semester!), which makes them the perfect day to read and contemplate life & the like.
      I think Baudelaires’s blasé face painted by Kupka shows a bit of what Mondays mean to me.
      Thank you for your comment & compliment. I genuinely appreciate it. (:

      1. I just read it — I really enjoyed it, and the photo is perfect!

        Baudelaire is one of my favorite of all times, too. Whenever my friends don’t know what to get when buying me a gift, they just pick a different translation of Baudelaire’s Fleurs du Mal. I chose the painting to illustrate my poem because I think Baudelaire probably disliked Mondays as well — yet the incredible amount of vibrant yellow in the picture makes it kind of happy, haha.
