Revisitation Du Beaudelaire
This is a tribute to a poet I discovered late in life, after an english professor of mine said that my poetry was reminiscent of his work. I also discovered, upon further study, we share the same religion, nationality, Western and Chinese astrological signs, and favorite author (Catholic, French, Aries, Snake, Poe). I hope I did him justice.

Revisitation Du Beaudelaire
Laurette M Laliberté Delouise

You torture my dreams.
Though captured by your ethereal beauty,
O, petal of the balckest rose.
I was torn between love, lust and duty.
As you abhor me, I punish myself.

You've forgiven all my wasted days spent
squandered in an opiate haze.
Elevation to the highest plane was
the destruction of my minds repose.
As you abhor me, I punish myself.

At your ebon breast I suckle, tender
as my bruised knuckle, aquired though
I fight in vane and knock
upon your door again.
As you abhor me, I punish myself.

I've rutted in the city's sewers,
corrupt flesh made new.
Your church-spire teeth
my heart to skewer.
As you abhor me, I punish myself.

Life-force flows out blackas ink,
Poured out darkness from within.
Permeates deliscious stink,
and feeds the blessed serephim.
As you abhor me, I punish myself.

Black-winged angel, envelope me,
open up the World before me.
Search my soul, develope me,
and lay low my defenses, Fleur du Mal.
As you abhor me, I punish myself.

Black eyes of fiery heat bore into me,
like icy-hot fingers sear my soul.
In that final hour,
musk-laden night descends
like a veil over the pained perfection
of your countenence.
The parfume fills my senses,
a last deception distorting
my perception of myself.
Obsession is desire
mired in a sea of
As you abhor me, I punish myself.



"what can I say, L... I liked it all in all... i liked the fancy words... but what does 'ABHOR' mean???" -- Hu Long Wai (Veronica).
"Thank you for reviewing it. I'm sorry for any confusing language. I used words from Beaudepaires own poetry and wove them into a tributary poem. "Abhor" means to hate. Beaudelaire had a love/hate relationship with a women who was the inspiration for the poem "Venus Noir (Black Venus)", and was cut off from his family's money because of that, among other things. The poem was a summary of events in his life." -- Laurette LaLiberte DeLouise, Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States.
