The fragrant air, soft and teasing
Curls upon itself and drifts.
You let it into our lungs in tiny delicate breaths,
Worrying.
It will change you forever.
Doesn’t take long for those breaths to get deeply.
Now you cloak yourself in the sweet
Vapours that cling to yo like morning dew.
You shiver, not cold but delicious,
Let them seep beneath your skin,
Mingle with your blood,
Pass beyond
Those membranes you hold so dear.
You only risk losing that which you wish you could but discard.
