If you were an aroma then you would be freshly cooked bread, with an undertow of vanilla and musk to catch at the breath.
If you were a sensation then you would be a fine, warm wood like teak or oak, with a surface worn smooth with loving touches.
If you were a sight then you would be an Eastern bazaar, all copper and light with a rich delight in every nook and corner.
If you were a sound then you would be a warm forest at dusk, full of the deeply comforting sounds of animals and birds going about their appointed tasks, easy and fluid.
If you were a taste then you would be chocolate, arousing of pleasure, a deep, velvety happiness, a hazy dream down in the groin, a delicious hum about the chest, a keening call to the stars above.
If you were a direction then you would be home.
