To Her

Written by: Brian Terry

To feel your body close to mine,
Your skin
So smooth
So soft
As silk or maybe satin.
What more can I desire?
I love to kiss your skin
A taste of honey and some spice.
And then your perfume, I breathe it in
No artifice required
It’s yours
What is the source?
Just pheromones?
No! That’s far too pedestrian
There must be something magical
To cause my head to spin.
I search each nook and cranny
And it’s all the same.
It’s everywhere
It overwhelms me.
What can I do?
Who am I to solve the mysteries of my love?
I go to sleep content
