Poetry On Odyssey: Late Night Thoughts

Poetry On Odyssey: Late Night Thoughts

intricately layered

like Pandora's box

you are better than whiskey served neat

with every sip

there are more to unravel

our union could not change you

masterfully composed

with notes of brandy and tonka bean

accompanied by shots of vanillic sandalwood and boozy amber

the smokiness of masculinity so arousing

it consumes all empty spaces between every thought

with you I have sinned plenty

and the gentle sex should not be faulted

long gone were the nights

you laid beneath me

with only silence between us

while you were submerged in green floral narcotic

while we saturated the atmosphere

your key is still with me

but we have long past the point of no return
