“He had preserved the best part of her and made it his own: the principle of her scent.”
― Patrick Süskind

he shops at the antique stores
searching for that one
in its original box

kept hidden from view
in mint condition

although its nice to display
a treasure of old
polished on the mantle piece

it will never be
he will never see

eve ate the poison apple
adams desire
that sweetest one he longed for

its gone forever
returning never

About Stayne

Welcome to my page and thank you so much for stopping by. I feel honoured to share some of your precious time. These are just a collection of thoughts that have popped into my head and I have managed to store here. I am hoping that one day I will find the time and inspiration to return to these thoughts to edit and craft poems out of them...ah maybe one day.
