the taste of the air

when she's been in the room

the haunting allure

of her favorite perfume


the weight of my heart

as she's walking away

and how it restarts

when she's looking my way


the thought of her smile

stirs emotions inside

fiercely, flirtatious and fragile

with the heart of a child


she exudes pure magic

in the breath of a sigh

heals my tragic

without even tryn


the darkness is dazzling

despite, daunting shadows

her laughter is babbling

smooth as pedals on roses


the touch of her skin

ignites the 4th of July

that devil may grin

with neither plea or alibi


she is so much more

than what meets the eye

the color of vapor

in the bright, clear-blue sky
