Scent

5 years ago I washed my sheets

Tonight I just want to lay in bed & smell your presence.

When you’re out of sight you stay in my mind.

You’re stalking my thoughts & this time I’m ready to lay here & be with your essence.

I’m not chasing your ghost but damn did you linger.

I washed my sheets & my body then but now I’d rather bathe in you.

Use your juices to style my locks. To shine my crown in your shadow.

Those years ago I didn’t know who or what I wanted, but now I do.

Tonight I’ll sleep in your afterglow tomorrow I’ll live in the light & think of these nights together in my bed.
