Fragrance Poetry inspired by Kalan from Parfums de Marly.
You see every one of my merits
As things to be wanted,
Like imported spices,
Zests, like precious woods
Spritzed with exotic peppers.
And yes, I have the fire,
To make you happy;
To play your game
– and win.
But, in reality
I’m more like a blood orange:
When you cut me
I still bleed red
from this heart of gold
Lend me your affection
Before this heart of gold
hardens to amber.

Little hairs tickled
More than just my goose-bumped skin. . .
Feels like young romance.

Fragrance Poetry Inspired by Side Effect from Initio.
Examining every move on our date,
I studied you sitting opposite me.
I had a slice of vanilla-rum cake.
You were content with cinnamon candies.
I now had courage to say how I felt,
But thoughts were like tobacco in my mouth.
My stomach only became more upset
The longer I refused to spit them out.
I knew my words would be strong and shocking,
But I had hoped they would settle sweetly.
“. . .I love You. . .”
But your affection was like your candy.
Before long, it dissolved away from me.
A side effect of false confidences –
Words still linger in the back of your mouth.
But don’t think that I need condolences.
Because now I’m fearless to speak my heart!
