That smell

What is it?

It swarms around me

Suffocating my thoughts.

It slides down the back of my throat

Like a thick mucus

In need of release.

Each step on the worn rug

Sends puffs of the smell into the air.

It attaches to every surface

Like a lurking creeper

Waiting to invade.

It latches onto my skin

Like a blood-thirsty leech

Delving deeper, searching.

An uncommon aroma.

Almost original.

Almost recognizable.

The smell

Of my room.
