“Places”

via Daily Prompt: Scent

the scent of this place
makes me sick
it turns my stomach and leaves behind
memories I can’t forget

the familiar air of the songs
we once sang to
held hands to;
leaves filth in my mouth that
can’t be washed out

I’d give an arm and a leg to be rid
of your scent still stuck in my mind
instead I sit here intact
all places but my heart

Can you tell I’m in a bad mood? 😆

You know how they say that scent is the strongest sense tied to memory? That it can practically take you back to the moment you smelled it? Well as cool as it is for good memories, it really sucks for bad memories. Reliving moments both in similar experiences plus having the fortune of smelling it too? Yeah, I’m in a bad mood.
