[Poetry] Cologne

It’s the scent of pheromones and freshly mown grass –
The day we met on the high school tracks.
It’s the scent of saltwater in the August air –
The day you braided sea shells in my hair.
It’s the scent of tears, acrid and bitter –
The day I watched you walk away with her.

  1. How beautiful that smells create the memories that are etched in your mind and heart forever! Same with me, its the smells that can take me years back to a time I hold so dear or even jolt me into remembering a favourite song! a lovely, lovely poem from the heart, sweet and touching, like a gentle breeze on my face!
