Sweet Obsession

Orange blossoms begin to come into flower,

on the garden vine in my heart.


The sweet aroma sets forth a passage to a

clandestine affair.


Between fate and reality,

 your eyes reflect the beauty that is

seeping in and out of my soul.


Breathless, this sweet fragrance becomes

 toxic, I can’t  concede defeat. 

For it will  carry me away to indulge in the

 ecstasy of an  illicit fixation.


 I quietly amble barefoot,

 beyond you in my tattered

negligee, which once radiated life.


Now, the bare essentials are all I have to

 offer. You, effortlessly extend your

rugged  hands into mine, a perfect fit like

a glove of an evening suitor.


I hesitate, afraid, my body quivers. Will his

 heart merge with mine, and stumble upon

my frailties?


Will he gaze beyond the

uncertainties, which seem to linger in my



Or is the aroma which permeates the air,

 pungent enough to

intoxicate all of his justification for truth?


Can my kiss transcend all understandings ~


Render him on bended knee…?
