Fragrance Poetry Inspired by Side Effect from Initio.

Examining every move on our date,
I studied you sitting opposite me.
I had a slice of vanilla-rum cake.
You were content with cinnamon candies.

I now had courage to say how I felt,
But thoughts were like tobacco in my mouth.
My stomach only became more upset
The longer I refused to spit them out.

I knew my words would be strong and shocking,
But I had hoped they would settle sweetly.
“. . .I love You. . .”
But your affection was like your candy.
Before long, it dissolved away from me.

A side effect of false confidences –
Words still linger in the back of your mouth.
But don’t think that I need condolences.
Because now I’m fearless to speak my heart!

    1. Haha. So you are usually just into the nice and clean scent? Avoiding all negative smells? Fragrances not just smell nice but also can add a level of aromatherapy to your life.

      That podcast looks really interesting. I’m going to have to check it out in a little while B-)


      1. No not at all. I just don’t usually wear more than lotion. Either vanilla or fruit usually. I love smells though. Petrichor and cut grass. Lilac. Peony. Bread baking. Bacon. Sheets in the sun. Silage. Manure. Cherry pipe tobacco. Gunpowder. Sweat. 🙂 haha

      2. Every brand is different so you can’t just say no to a “note.” I have a rose and incense fragrance that I LOVE. But for the better notes, you usually have to spend quite a bit more $$ B-(

  2. You’re surprising me every single time….with your beautiful & fragrant lines….that give me this different & interesting vibe….where I wish to jump deep & steep from the crazy heights….from there, I disappear when I spread my wings….to fly in this beautiful & open sky

    1. Thanks Navin, you always build me up as such a great poet! Not sure it’s my words inspiring you or if I’m just passing on the vibes of the fragrance. I’d like to think the latter because that’d mean I’m a really good writer to transfer those vibes. Your lines are great B-)
