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.
