November 18th, notes for further study

Spread the love

Spoiling me
with the lightest brush of your lips,
a smile
a parting
and sweet disorder.
I reckon
you know what goes on inside my head
long after
your gaze leaves the room,
aware
that the last strawberry would taste
the best of all.

  7. You always bring a touch of romance with you, Sanaa, and sweetness in this poem, too. You have also reminded me that there are strawberries in our fridge begging me to eat them for breakfast! I love the list of three:
    β€˜a smile
    a parting
    and sweet disorder’.
