You Say Your Life Stinks?

Current mood: schadenfreude-ish

Category: Romance and Relationships


Life stinks when
things that smell good
are missing .... like

in the morning
coffee perking
fresh squeezed orange juice
cut flowers

in the afternoon
bread baking
tomato sauce simmering

and at night
long hot showers together
perfumed massage oil
scented candles
crisp clean sheets
her body in your arms

But nothing beats
that "new car" smell
Unless it's
the smell of money.

(From Deeplip's novella-in-verse, Unreqwerty'd Love: the story of belle and play.)
