Making Sense of Desire


I can taste it before I feel it
desire
tangy and delicate
like clover honey

I can smell it before I taste it
desire
basenotes of bergamot
and sandalwood

I can see it before I smell it
desire
the pulse in the neck
the widening pupils

I can feel it before it takes me
desire
across a room
across an ocean

Desire.

  2. desire
    stirs the soul
    moves the body
    touches the mind
    with electrical impulses
    I see it
    I want it
    I sense it
    I draw it near
    I smell it
    I offer it my world
    to loose itself in


    such wonderful words your desire has stirred
