Her Scent - Poem by Hm. Nes

I feared her scent,
That it was more than I could bear
In this present condition,
In this tenuous state of mind

Not in this life-
This shallow, hollow existence-
Not today of all days.

Still, she came into the room
Uninvited
Uninvited
Largely unwanted,
And at the same time wanted,
More than reason will allow.

The words fell limply from my quavering lips,
'Go.'
'Go away.'
'No, don't go. Stay. Stay.'
She stayed.
And my fear turned to calm,
And then to dread

She may never go.
What will I feed her?
