I needed to smell him not the smell and the smoke.

But no matter how hard

I tried

I just couldn’t…

and though I tried

and inhaled deep

even I was lost…

and couldn’t see.

His monster had taken over, the emotionless demon,

the thing without compassion and tears.

I only smelled his demon,

and that’s why I can’t come back to love him…
