It was a new beginning
Unknown street patterns
And loads of work to get commited to.
You were no more a memory to return.
You were the cold steak I was never to taste,
Forgotten and lost among the various other plies of my past.
Smell of a similar cologne caught me off guard one day
While I walked through the crowd of the busiest hour.
It smelled of comfort and attachment.
Comfort that I missed for so long.
With that sudden fragrance I felt hunger inside of me.
Hunger for a place where I felt loved and overwhelmed.
I rummaged through my heart to name the comfort I felt
And when I finally could find the right memory,
I had your name to my lips.
The distasteful cold Steak that I was to avoid
was forced to plate
And it made me sick again,
Sick enough to not be able to smile for days.
