When I Inhale You

I associate you

Many believe that smells hold the best memories

Coffee is often associated with comfort

Soap is associated with cleanliness

But when I inhale your smell...

I associate you with nostalgia

with memories of my youth, and promises of an adventurous future

I associate you with kindness

with the compassion of a mother, and the honor of a father

I associate you with passion

with a dance partner who'd lead, and a stargazer who'd set me free

I associate you as a storyteller

with words that'll capture our chapter, and a title people would envy

I associate you with happiness

with dreams that become reality, and hope that becomes fulfilled

I associate you with wine

with the taste of intoxication, and euphoria of inebriation

I associate you with nature

with colorful wildflowers, the ocean, and forests of tall trees

I associate you with love

with something as ancient as life itself, and something as endless as time

I associate you with home

with a sense of absolute belonging, and a place to call my own

About the Creator

Brin J.

I never believed the sky is the limit, therefore my passions are expansive. My interest in writing stemmed from poetry but my heart lead me to Sci-Fi Fantasy. Consequently, my stories are plot-driven with splashes of evocative elements.

    Very moving Brin and pretty universal actually as well in that it's hard to imagine anyone not identifying with the sentiments you reveal here. Great job!
