  • Your heart wrapped around mine,
    your love,
    - as extravagant as the mantle of King Louis -
    gushing out of Notre-Dame's gargoyles,
    flooded the fair city of lights.
    Tip-toeing on the Seine River, we crossed over to the other bank,
    where bliss met despair,
    when, for a lone second, I let go of your hand.
