An ode to my gardenia-scented skin lotion:
My sugarplum. My sweet thing.
I love you.
I love you with the wild abandon of a first crush.
Your touch invigorates me.
Nothing in the world smells quite like you.
I love the memory of you wafting up to me as I go through my day.
My darling. My lotion. I could just hang out with you all the time.
Author’s note: what in the world am I talking about, you may be wondering? I am in a totally silly mood and my gardenia lotion made me insanely happy this morning. So I thought I’d write it a little free verse. That is all. Hugs.
This is the jam right here, by the way, in case you’re wondering. Heaven on earth:
