AROMA PART II (a poem for my husband

This is the second poem in a 4-part series on the concept of AROMAS… Good things, bad things, Great Things.

All of my life I fringed about


lost in the dark places


the lonely spaces


of dank and dire


Until you…


Hard to describe your breath


sweet and masculine


always sweet


like the very air in your body


was laced with sugar and metal


like your lungs were


uniquely designed


to turn my pollution


into purity.


I first noticed it


at our first kiss


as you held my face


you inhaled


all my doubt


and wanderings


and exhaled all over me


the sweetest


longings


for me


to give you my heart


forever.
