The woman in the romantic movie…

by Widdershins

Age Group: Adult

Part I.

What sort of sad ending
that never ends – like a walk
in Paris or the canals of Venice—
all memories, and almost like
a fantasy or a romance—
that’s what sad goodbyes mean to me,
only… these are never true
could I actually do that
to you? say goodbye like in a movie
and sail away…
probably not, I decide,
the woman from the romantic movie of years outdated
and still cherished today in romantic hearts,
the lady of enigma with her gloved hands,
waving goodbye as the steam sets the engines
sailing her away… overseas
back home—
to where? to her European home
that lady of style and etiquette that had
captured the heart of a man she met, and
had to leave – “c’est fini”, she calls softly,
but the tears in her eyes betray
that she had not said goodbye today,
and it is never the end…
her sunshine smile, with red-hued lips,
the smooth skin and lushly darkened eyes,
they blink back the promise she would betray
when gazing too long, far away…
the soft sounds of the gentle jazz
coincide neatly with the waves
the sunshine isn’t hidden by the small, fluffy and white clouds
and the warmth envelopes the sadness in daylight’s comfort
“it’s never goodbye, ” she whispers softly under her breath…
but is caught by surprise
when arms suddenly take her so easily—
how had he found her? without so much as an effort—
was she that obvious? her breath catches…
…the woman in the romantic films, well yes…
romantic at best, at worst—
an emotional test, to see if I might survive
existence in the less subtle and more difficult times
where the woman in the films sleeps inside,
and the shell goes out conquering—
not for me at all…
“c’est fini, mon amour…”

Part II.

In the blue waves of sickening certainty,
the omen of death seems to overwhelm me, but then—
a strange image captures my attention
there stands an image of someone I’ve seen,
who could it be? a lady of stature and elegance
she looks at me mysteriously, understanding—
oh, lady of such fine dress,
with finesse and the cunning of a feline on a hunt
going out for the man she wants—
who are you, and why are you in my head?
“you summoned me, ” she replies:
my mind draws a blank—
I’ve gone insane, that’s it, there’s some outdated lady
telling me all this, that I summoned
her figure – from some romantic literature? am I insane
she doesn’t fit into the picture today! I’ll go along
with my usual prowess and step-and-glance,
without the soft calls and with the dangerous looks,
without the dress and with the enigma’s hook
she is no wolf, but a movie figure,
I however—
