viaย 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? ๐Ÿ˜†

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.

“The Light Inside”

viaย Haiku Horizons: Joy

the joy in my life
is nothing compared to the
light inside your eyes

– by Naaria

What is happiness if we are alone? What is happiness for ourselves if those around us are not? May we create happiness for ourselves and share it with everyone around us. ๐Ÿ™‚

via Daily Prompt: Year

another day and
another year gone by. so
bring it on! ready?

– by Naaria

I don’t think I’ve ever been so pumped up to start a new year. I feel like this is going to be a really, really, really good year. Considering how great last year was… 2017 may just blow every other year out of the water by the feel of it!

The fact that I had apple pie for breakfast definitely has nothing to do with how pumped I am. ๐Ÿ™„

Today I’m getting my energy back from the cold and stomach bug I’ve been fighting off, and getting ready to hit the weights hard tomorrow. Two weeks of no lifting makes Naaria a grumpy, restless butt.

Oh, and for dinner tonight? Filet mignon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yep, this is going to be a really good year.

“Intimate Moments”

via Daily Prompt: Ovation


intimacy flows,
thundering ovation of
quivering bodies

– by Naaria

Sometimes you have to go back to the basics of being together, embracing each other, and remembering why you’re together at all. Sometimes it’s hard, and there are always going to be moments where it might even feel impossible thanks to the cloudiness that a whirlwind of emotions grants us. Much to my dismay, of course.

As long as we can somehow relax, or be talked through the whirlwind by a dear and loving friend, the clouds clear and the light of another day can bless us once more.
