Beautiful Poison: A Love Poem

beautiful poison

You come to Fall
almost bursting with
and stem alive
with brilliant color.

I can see the light reflect
from your face
a face I have touched perhaps
three times
one thousand.

I long to reach for you
with your
juice filled orbs
and drink
of the toxin
you love to carry in your veins.

Some poison never loses it's allure.
