Honey, heat, and cinnamon
linger everywhere she's been.
My hands, my hair, my lips, my skin
wear her like the rain.
She blooms deep in a whistle thorn tree,
and she's shred apart far better than me.
But I can keep secrets and quietly bleed
until only we two remain.
Editorial Note for Your Enjoyment: In the language of flowers, acacia symbolizes secret love. Cassie flower absolute (Cassie) is extracted from the Acacia Farnesiana flower and used in several french perfumes.
