Just an Observation

# Poem

you smell like an electric storm
brooding on the horizon
i can see it glowing
dancing beneath your skin

in a past life
you were an Amazon
bronze in the forest
or all the colors of white

i am a savage
in constant betrayal
of nature
and love
that you and i are just animals
and chemicals
and matter
