Poetry: This Tempting Trap

Poetry: This Tempting Trap
by Azadeh Azad

For the "Writing Love" series.


One hot summer day, to be precise,

Under the constellation of Dove

On Friday the thirteenth of August,

In the afternoon, I fell in love.


I fell into love, to be precise

It was a trap, a charming design

I saw friendship bird fly over it

Heard love trap throw it a jealous line


"Why are you? I've been here for years,

Helping people break their boredom gears

The bird said, "To give a smile to those

Eyes in which you leave sorrow and tears."


Saved by friendship bird one winter grey

I fell ino love again on the same day

My eyes turned full of sorrow and tears

And I’ll tell you why I did stray.


"Crever pour crever, je préfère crever

de passion que de crever d'ennui" (*)

I’d rather die of love and passion

than be bored to death in some fashion.


(*) The quotation is attributed to Emile Zola
