Fragrance Poetry Inspired by Navus from Navitus.
If I could, I would love you like you want
But I just need some time to readjust.
If I could, I’d soak my soul in this bath
Where soap and suds can wash away the dust.
You’re a delicate orange and citrus tree
The ylang-ylang vines wrap around you,
Gentle, pink rose bushes bloom from your roots.
I’m just vetiver living in your shade.
Opportunity won’t last forever;
Love can pass by while I try to adjust.
So if my timid mind “loses the day,”
Don’t let my heart know the love that it lost.
