rose petal wishes, i kiss them softly and hope your dreams are soft and sweet | #wonderland

March 5, 2019


meine Liebe, du erinnerst mich an schönheit und blassrosa rosen

    i want to remember this phrase so that i can whisper it to you under the cotton-candy sunsets while you rest your head on my shoulders as we laze on your valencian beaches, or in our italian cottage as we sip honey drinks with petals floating in them. i want to remember this phrase so that i can mumble it under my breath as i thread geraniums into your crown of braids, you're quiet and still, and i don't know if you can hear me, but just this closeness is enough to make my heart melt into songs that you keep in your feel-good playlists - they play in my head as i breathe you in, the flowers suddenly became so much beautiful when you pointed them out to me.

    Schlaf gut und träume in der sanften Umarmung dieser rosa Wolken

    rose petal baths can't compare to the comfort you give me, your palms are as soft as pink camellias and the lingering touches you give me are like an emotional aphrodisiac - i can't get enough of this feeling. my head feels like it's stuck in those cotton-candy clouds, this is a dream and i never want to wake up from you. orchids flourish in every corner of your room - you love life and la pachamama smiles on you so fondly that i can't help but think you're her favourite by far. tulip-printed skirts and hyacinths in your front garden, cherry blossom hairpins and the carnation you slipped behind my ear when i closed my eyes for a moment - it's all blush and gentle gazes when i'm with you.

    Ihr Lächeln erfüllt mich mit Liebe und Anbetung für alles, was uns zusammengebracht hat

Menschen, die Blumen lieben, 
können nicht schlecht sein, 
sagt man.

    Mein Engel, meine Liebe, Göttin meiner Träume und all das, was gut und rein ist

ich liebe dich
if you google translate the german, it should translate to the rough meaning.

    @artificialaorta thank you! that's the kind of vibe i was going for; it's hard to write like what a moodboard looks like, but i tried my best.
