A Seamless Affair

You smell like musk and apples
and when you smile,
your little pointy teeth stick out
ever so slightly
over your bottom lip.
Your hair is all in knots and dreads
and your eyes
mean everything you say
when you say it to me.
You drive me crazy
with your I don’t care’s
and you drink beer like a man,
refusing to smoke my cigarette’s.
I admire your pride.
But you’re soft… and you’re sweet
And in spite of everything
you radiate warmth
And it takes everything I have
To not want you
