otherness

she is mystery

she is magic

her movements sensuous and fluid

comfortable and confident in her own skin

her mahogany hair hangs loosely to her waist

her clothing the finest silk

bright and beautiful in cobalt and carmine

her fragrance a delicious combination of sweet vanilla and freshly brewed coffee

with hints of cardamom and cinnamon

and other exotic spices I can’t quite put my finger on

her otherness comforts me

makes me feel less alien

she is magic

she is mystery
