What Rose Wanted

What Rose Wanted

The breath of night envelops her with the memory
Of sultry summer days filled with hidden promise
For the long-awaited one to disregard her walls
His aroma blossoms within her hungry mind
And blushing petals drip as thoughts of him unwind
With each burning inhalation quaking urgency
For his impending stay to satisfy a need
That overtakes the body and leaves behind the mind
As fingertips explore each spot she’d so much like to find
