Poem in style of Jean Prevert

Je T'aime

Your mind excites me.
Je t'aime.
Your body thrills me.
Je taime.
I want to nuzzle your neck.
Je t'aime.
I crave your arms around me.
Je t'aime.
Your kindess touches me.
Je t'aime.
Your insights calm me.
Je t'aime.
I want you to be happy.
Je t'aime.
Your mortality scares me.
Je t'aime.

  1. Victoria this reminds me so much of a song called 'Je t'aime moi non plus ' sung by Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin.It was considered to be scandalous and was banned in a few countries in the 60s. It's on you tube and is so tame one wonders what all the fuss was about!
    This poem may well be in the style of Jean Prevert:)

  2. Beautiful love poem, Victoria. I also remember the "scandalas" song Rannentanda talked about. (In fact I had a 45 of it!) But by today's standards, it is so very tame.

  3. Beautiful, Victoria. I love it! I always tell my husband that I hope I die first. (Not for a long time, of course.) But life without him? Please, no.

  6. Sweet comments, all of you. I am hoping to get in the habit of reading your poetry blogs soon - had started and enjoyed but then have a bunch of big changes in my life and little computer time.
