Signature

Written for:  Poets United Midweek Motif~Perfume  (posted by Sanaa)
“Your task today is to write a new poem that revolves around the idea of perfume. Feel free to take the subject in whichever direction that suits you i.e romantic, solemn, philosophical, dark etc.”

Perfume is like cocktails without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories, like an affair without tears, like a vacation from which you never have to come back. ~ Marian Bendeth

I soak in jasmine
and orange blossoms,
bursts of bergamot,
and lingering scents
of amber, musk, patchouli.

My perfume is my signature,
my inner core of sexuality.
Come closer.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Whiffs of a particular aromatic feel will be identified by those close to you even with eyes closed. Yes, perfumes have that effect
