intoxicates me

There's something
about him
that intoxicates me

the way he talks,
walks
with confidence,
carelessness.

the warm scent of
spices and cologne --
I have to resist. I want to
breathe
him in

his coat,
his shoes, his posture,

every aspect
of his beautiful silence
urges me
into a world
of fantasy.
