Her Scent In My Blanket


There I lay and I always tried!
Smooching the blanket and try to find
The sweet scent that I want to smell
When I found it I smiled and fell.

When she left I hugged the pillow
And the day turned into yellow.
I couldn't resist to kiss it
So, I did and smooched it a bit,
Then the smell that can make me leap!
I smelled it 'till I fell asleep.

There I lay and I always tried!
Smooching the blanket and try to find
The sweet scent that I want to smell
When I found it I smiled and fell.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I slept with my crush for the first time. When she left in the morning I was missing her immediately, the fragrance of her perfume that was still lingering and sticking at the pillows and blankets was all that I had left of her.

But after my making thou write more true!
