The Fragrance of Heart Break

September 23, 2012
In the corner of my eye

laying near the dim lighted tub,

I peer at the familiar shiny translucent brown bottle,

only to taunt me.

Like a distance breeze crawling up my body,

I shiver in the scortching hot bubbles and suds

as the sight of this bottle patiently spooks me;
Falling into temptation, I open the lid of Twilight Woods.

I close my eyes

while I receive flashbacks of a young blue-eyed boy

They continuously haunt me

I am instantly eager to leave this vivid memory.

But it is too late, I smell the inside of the bottle

that rapidly releases nostalgia

Steam rises out of the tub water

Just like my senses that rise farther


I run cold water out of the faucet

hoping to calm my minds fire

but I'm still stuck in the memory of this past winter

It was December that I last wore a fragrance of such


The cold air, the miserable lonely desires

That was when I met this young blue-eyed boy

that I never intended to have love for

But have I ever fallen in love?

It's the question I unknowingly will never have the

strength to admit

because the last time I opened that brown bottle lid

was when he left,

the last time that I saw

the only blue eyes that spoke deeper

than the ocean at all depths.

He's gone, like the affection of death

But when I opened the lid to that familiar shiny

translucent brown bottle

it is like he never left,

The memory of him is stronger than any scent of

lotion that exists
