Nothing but scent

30 Dec



I will take you

to the Ball.

You will wear

your scarlet lipstick

your highest heels

your best pearls

your most elegant dress

and nothing but scent




I posted this around this time at the end of December last year. It seems fitting for the approaching New Year’s Eve.

    To have her scent invade your nostrils while holding her close
    during that last dance before the New Year…
    Beautifully written words!
