Your dress is a ball gown,
an upside-down rose petal;
those inverted flowers
make half of my garden:
I'll make you a bouquet
of dark red, and lavender;
a dress for warm evenings,
our hot nights.

Eyes like watered wine,
refined, and intoxicating;
decanted, measured,
inviting and poisonous:
You've corrupted me, dear,
but slowly, carefully;
hazel depths, inviting,
deep amber alcohol.

A thousand grains of sand,
gritty and gravelly, imperfect;
nothing feels farther from
your skin touching mine:
Velvet and silk and corduroy,
these things of delicacy;
every inch of you, satin smooth,
elegant suede and swan feathers.

Lazy days, shaded porches,
iced tea and lemonade;
respite that comes from your lips,
conversations and intimations:
Down below your surface,
your flowers, toxins, and chiffon;
whispers of another life,
lived apart from me.
"Time is up
And let's not do this again
I am losing more than love, my friend
Off the broken path,
I think, I think I need a new technique
I'm gonna try to do the best I can..."

---Everything, Ron Reeser and Dan Saenz ft. Myah

This is beautiful. Every piece of imagery you've employed is wonderfully striking, and that first stanza is just divine. :love:
