The Scent of Your Feelings

The scent of your feelings clings 
To the fabric of my dreams
It never leaves….it lingers
Lingers
Permeating everything
The scent of your feelings
Envelopes me

The fragrance of gardenia
When you are tender, sweet
Gentle and serene 
Tranquility showing through
In the gardenia scent of you

Seducing scent of jasmine
Surrounds you like an aura
Heavy, heady
Promising opulent luxury
Of flesh upon flesh
With you in control
Leading me deeper
Into the scent of your fantasies
Tantalizing, teasing, tempting
Endless jasmine ecstasy
Sensual and satiating
Is the jasmine scent of you

Perfumed in Damask Rose
Giving off the scent 
Of inner turmoil
Uncertainty, vulnerability
You are brooding and troubled
Guarded, disturbed
Needing to be reassured
Held in the strength of my arms
Quieted by my love
Till dawn’s light
When your safety is assured
And your scent finds release
Along with that of mine

Honey suckle perfume
Your need to nurture
To let me suckle
At your breasts
Your perfume speaking
In words my soul hears
That you live only
To care for my needs
Your perfumed hands
Soothing way the aches and pains
Of my rough and busy day
Honey suckle promises
Of womanly affection
In waves of comfort and light
I taste honey
Nectar that sweetens my lips
For I know it flows for me
I know I am nothing
A poor lost man
Without the fragrance of honey suckle
Wafting over me

Narcissus emotions
When there is venom in your eyes
Sparks fly all around me
And I know a storm is coming
A scent foreboding
Ominous…
Indicating the imminence
Of the unleashing of thunder and lightning
Torrents of rain
The scent of angered passion
I sense it
I smell your brewing storm
I’m unleashed in the elements
And yet….I know
How to harness your storm
How to bring calm
How to let you vent in my arms
Beat at my chest
I silence you with a kiss
Your arms pinned
The anger passes
Yet your 
Narcissus scent
Left on my chest
Leaves me shaken
Unglued
Weak
In the aftermath
Of your storm

Orchid emotions
The perfume of surrender
Absolute abandon to my will
The sweetest fragrance
The tenderest emotion
A wilting flower
Waiting to be revived
Tenaciously wrapping around my body
Knowing its source of life, love, and happiness
Your scent moves me
Brings out my desires
To possess
To please and reward
To bring color to your petals
By my life giving stream
Lost in this scent
The most beautiful of all
The scent of surrender
To me

The scent of your emotions
Clings to my being
Promising
A perfumed eternity
In your arms

Eileen M Ghali

    The Greeks have three words for love agape...Godly love....philao...brotherly love....and eros...physical love...from which the word erotic is derived....So, physical love is beautiful and must be celebrated....

    a perfumed tour de force! I think this is one of the best poems I've read of yours so far; you really went all out on this one! funnily enough, I had a similar idea for a poem, but it remains unfinished in my file of (many) unfinished poems...I may finish it sometime, but I doubt anything I write could top this one! great work :)

Please...do finish your poem...I have no doubt that you can top this in your own distinctive style and flavor! Hugs

    I'm so impressed! I would never have come to the idea of "playing the male part" in this beautiful piece of theatre, playing games around floral scents! A masterpiece! Thank you for the collaborative work with Drake! You are such a blessed hear! Didn"t you put the poem into your own list? I'm looking for it! Hugs, Hanitra

    Yes, I know you like Jasmine! :) I was going to go with lavender as well....I had to pick and choose which ones fit with my theme and which were the most fragrant. I love floral scents. I love pictures of flowers...I have a sweet friend who sends me links on FB of flowers....mostly purple ones, but any type of bouquet...Charmaine, when I'm depressed...and when my mind doesn't function...I click through those pics and find peace....My cover photo on FB is almost always some sort of flower arrangement...I also love sprays of fuchsia bougainvillea and wisteria dreams. Oh my...Hugs! Thanks for the visit.

    By the way...I can't take too much credit for the concept of feelings being like a scent. That was something that was shared with me. I just loved the idea and decided to expand on the theme. :)

    Thanks, Richard. I'm glad I could get into a man's heart and mind with this one. :) I did quite a bit of research this afternoon trying to figure out which flowers carry which types of scents. It wasn't easy. I'm not a horticulturalist, but I do like floral scents. The signature scent I wear, Elie Saab, is floral mix. I do love it so...I'm on my second bottle and I so hate to see it diminish, but it does give me a boost when I wear it... :)

    Thanks, Nette...Must like a fragrance does. I love fragrances...I like to have a signature scent. I do go for the more overt ones. For a long time I loved to wear Yves Saint Laurent's PARIS...Beautiful...Now I wear Elie Saab...I like connected a scent with a person....So I stick to a scent for a while. This write was a pleasure to work on. Thanks for understanding the feelings I was trying to capture.

    "A perfumed eternity"...damn. Sensually eloquent. The best way to define this writing.

    I say, it's about friggin time. I stopped letting the ignoramus conform who I am...especially when they can't even identify themselves. Stay you -> Stay true.

    DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPEEEEE!!!! :) Where has the world gotten to where a word like that can send one into orbit. I have no clue! ;) Thanks anyhow! Yes, I do like to write about sensuality as I am a very sensual person....Romance that leads up to that is also divine. I have decided to embrace who I am, and not mind if people like what I write or not in this genre. What do you say?

    A beautiful write... complete with heady fragrances of a true lover's emotions... You capture a woman's myriad moods into such descriptive bliss!! Well done, lady!!!

    Oh dear Bindu....ALL those emotions...everyone rage in my heart. I think when God wired me....He forget to include a good dose of common sense. I walk around with my head in the clouds....Too emotional at times, but...I cannot disown myself, no can I? Thanks ever so much for the sweet post. Hugs
