A sigh

01 May


It was just the scent of her.

A faint memory of a moment. A whisper of her presence. The slightest movement as she passed.

It made me catch my breath. It sent a shiver dancing through me. It made me close my eyes and shake my head.

She is achingly beautiful. A wild, untamed, exquisite beauty beyond words. Beyond compare.

Beyond me.

She vanished so quickly that I know I must have dreamed her.

I am left with only a sigh.
