I love the way one smell can suddenly make you remember. The way it fills your head with images of who you used to be.

Smells are amazing

They bring back memories

In just one second

 

A spray of the silver bottle

And I'm suddenly transported

Back to the fun sixth grade

 

I see a girl

Who thought she was confident

But didn't know what she truly wanted

 

So flirtatious

With a boundless enthusiasm

She lived her life out loud

 

So honest

Sometimes even insulting friends

But she never had cruel intentions

 

So purple

She wore purple everywhere

From her plastic glasses to her soft capris

 

I see a girl

Who was happy then

But had a lot to learn

 

A spray of the silver bottle

And suddenly I am whisked

From the present to my past

 

Smells are amazing

They flash old times

Right before my eyes.
