-elixir- Aug 20
The gardens of perfumed bliss
make me stop and stare as the
fumes run through me,
igniting the odes of passion
that once died in the drought
of the wilted roses in my dreams.
the perfumed musk wraps me as I stop in my tracks

white jasmine petals
like the finest silk so pure
nature's sweet perfume
Mother brings a lot off memories
The first perfume I smelt was hers as I snuggled in her arms.
Years later when Angels needed her more than me I realized that she wore no perfume all her life, what I smelt was her love for me.
Now I know why angels look so beautiful it's because you and many a mother is there to braid their hair just right.
Today
I wore
an oceanic perfume
the warm heart notes
make me think
of you

every time I breathe
the smell of a soft
ambergris breeze
I think of what it would be
to visit your office,
return to the beach

I'd like to feel
salt water heal me
no more tears
no more sweat
just
the sea
and a friend's
peaceful company

that's all I need
For my HP friend, Cloudydaze
who writes beautiful poems at the beach
and always supports me

mum
what is a mum but a wall?
walked on, on tippy toes and
knees scraped on and
picked up off.  
What is a mum,
but a hand to hold
and an arm to lean on
and a perfume to smell forever even without her.  
What life would it be without you, stubborn, caring, omnipresent and omni-understanding.
What world would it be without your forgiving?  
Not a world i would want regardless.
i love you. i live you.

there is no aroma in my house
or none I've ever noticed
at least,
at least when she is not around.

i miss her scent,
her fragrance.
it's indescribable.

all I know that it's better than
the salty ocean breeze's
and fresher than
summer's red-ripe strawberries.
free as a bird I found myself out of the cage of love
a display of unrestrained delight
released from physical obstruction
only to realize freedom smelled like floral notes of sambac,
jasmine and tunisian orange blossom just like you
-elixir- Apr 24
Your perfume,
drowns me
in your
aura

As you stare,
deep into my soul
and fire me up
with your scent

Burning it,
into my skin,
as I seek you
amidst the lingering
perfume.
