Eau du vie

I’d hurry up if I had to go in after she did

Try to hold my breath

Didn’t want to smell Gran’s scent

Coudn’t put my finger on it

Something musky, something stale

I didn’t know then what it was

But it made me feel scared

She’s long since gone

But I smelled it today

I know what is is now

The perfume of age

Daily prompt: perfume

# perfume #dailyprompt #aging
