It’s Rotten


Reek, rank, rancid…

My life has spoiled!

It stinks right now

And I can’t get the smell out.

Only your cologne

Would cover the stench

Of loneliness and despair

And make me breathe easy.

Breathe in your

Fresh air of positivity

And leave the stagnant smell

Of a life of negativity behind.

    1. Thank you. I had a particular friend in mind when I wrote this who is ALWAYS positive. Can’t recall I time I talked to him when he couldn’t make me smile. I had just seen a picture of him with “virus hair” (very long with no barber shops open) and he looked like he stepped straight out of the 70’s.
