‘Faire la bise,

Everything around me went dark.

The light she sparkled was like the sunrise,

while moving counter clockwise she spoke softly;

“to a drip of tear, to a sniff of cry, I seek for thou eye.”

Let me hold your heart,

let me kiss your smile,

let me feel your grace,

for I’m chanting my soul to your known “faire la bise.”

Crossing my mind to behold my wish with the wise,

I scream for your attention into the bluest skies.









the spoken lies.

For I speak to love,

For I share my heart,

For I grant you my thoughts,

Let me say “I love you.”

from the beginning of earth endwise.

    ‘for I’m chanting my soul to your known “faire la bise.”’ I love this, I feel like it’s the core of the poem somehow, and I find it has a kind of deeper meaning, what with Covid here in France no one can “faire la bise” (cheek-kiss greeting) anymore… the poem feels of imposed or implied distancing, and deepest yearning, and a kind of free spiritedness which is sensual but also very sweet. What a poetic treat, I loved the part where it falls down word by word and ends much the way it began, with the earth and the spinning and counterclockwise, like she is the earth. And the seeming implied hint of endworld… so beautiful Jojo 💛😚😚💕🌌🙏🌻🌍💫🤩

      Pfff, Lia….. Lia.. Lia😍😍
      First things first: WOW❤️🙏🏽 this comment is heartwarming to my soul, thank you ❤️

      Secondly, “faire la bise” was the core sentence of the whole poem indeed.
      I just don’t know what to say, the emotions and feelings you got from my poem. WOW.
      It’s funny you mentioned the “words falling down part. Word by word”… I was really hoping if it would work, the whole poetry was just me connected with the words. And didn’t think about the “set up”. It was just emotions dancing through my body into words.

      Ughh don’t know where to start😂, i love your whole comment 😍😍😍😍

      Thank you so much, Lia❤️
      Let me just say i; I love your soul ❤️❤️
      You got the brightest smile on me today☺️😍💞
