‘Sadness looks so beautiful on you!’ your voice had spoken, an alluring smile lifting your face. I didn’t know I wore a dress. I wondered why. Maybe too vulgar is the laughter or the day, the happiness too rare, so large the holes of fabric, my striped skin they reveal, its cuts and scars well
A poem from “Parentheses”, which is a work in progress, still. 😉 Yet, I’ve included some of the English poems in “Memories” (“amintiri”), my latest Romanian book that has been published in July. Illustrations and cover for Parentheses by Jade Ene.
