She has a weakness

for strangers and poets

artists and dreamers

masters and dancers

adventurers and saints

and men

who make her feel

dangerous and safe

at the same time.

    Or perhaps she has a weakness for the singular as in one. Nicely written as always.

    I adore this and love the image you chose.
    I used to always put a scarf over my lampshade and read, dreaming of saintly adventurers when everyone else was asleep. 🙂
