Mint & Spice

You sat next to me,

In the bus heading home,

Your scent; Mint & Spice,

made me wish you’d move closer.

Your thigh brushed mine,

firm, strong: made me wonder,

about you.

Are you Strong?

Are you firm…in your decisions?

The bus went too fast,

Rocked us all over a bump,

I swayed, you steadied me with a chuckle,

the sound of it, so carefree.

When I finally looked at you,

I almost gaped in shock,

Your teeth were black as night,

and all my flowery thoughts,

flew out the window.

I came out a stop away from my usual,

And chastised my imagination,

for making you a wondrous prince,

with just the scent of

Mint & Spice.
