Love letter # 192
We all bow before the seasons. Every year it’s the same – the particular perfume of beginning, the smell of promise. The scent in the air that night.
And you spilling wine on my shirt. Your hand on my chest as I changed. My eyes hungry. Yours too. Him in the other room.
You might say you regret it but there isn’t anything I wouldn’t burn again. I learnt to notice the flowers that year.
And I smell them now and think of your skin.
