You're my poison

You're my poison

A Poem by Tony Jordan
"

- 'What's your poison?'

"
Oh darling, 
please
decant me
a chalice 
of 
you...

I will 
inhale
your heady
aroma

and 
sip from it 
for 
all
 my days.

I will giggle
like a teen
on bubbles
that tingle
my 
blood.

I will get tipsy;

ramble...
incessantly...

of how utterly
captivating
you are.

I will get drunk
on the brew
of your love
and 
never be
hung-over

~

for I will 
never 
sober of 
you

stop trying to get me into romance, gotta keep the manly hermit act! i can't resist the lyrical beauty of unwavering passion like this!

(i once, long time ago, wrote something named "sinful summer club", i dont know why but this combined with the color red reminds me of it)

I like that your reviewers have no trouble feeling comfortable enough to tell you how they feel.the explanations are great. I also like the poem, and any questions I had were answered in the comments.

we don't celebrate the love of a man for a woman nearly enough ..we are usually the bad "guys" ;) i enjoyed reading this honest expression of love from a sort of bumbler ..especially enjoy "I will get tipsy;' and:
"ramble...
incessantly..."
in love with my woman this has been my own private theme song ;)

Really like this one. Lovely in the sense a person's love is 'drink' that never gets us out of it's effects and that we linger over it evermore. I can relate to this in a way, very well done.
