I came in from work the other day and literally collapsed on my bed from exhaustion
I caught the scent of my partners aftershave, it literally brought back a thousand memories, some good, amazing, funny, and some bad but all worth remembering.
I remembered things I hadn’t thought of in years.
Strange isn’t it that at the end of an exhausting day this surreal experience could happen and send my mind into an ever lasting spiral of thought.
It made me realise that I don’t stop to relax and take in the scents, lights, or colours around me.
I notice it on my Nan who i love with every inch of my heart, It reminds me she will always put everyone before herself no matter how little she has, it is always too much.
I notice it on my Mum, It reminds me of the strength she has, how independent she is and how she taught me to survive.
I notice it on my closest friend, It reminds me of the smile she pushed out through the depression, she is my hero and will always remain a warrior in my eyes.
I notice it on other family and friends to, these are the people who have impacted my life and left their ever lasting print.
perfume is my liquid memory.
