Scent

So you said you were coming
sooner or later
like the ray of a burning sun.
Like a rain that heals
all the scars on the skin.

And the icy air around me
smelled like your sex.
Everything smelled like you,
everything was white and placid
like you.
Like the mark you left
in this bed.

My nose looking for you
in all the folds of the curtains.
And your scent that doesn't leave me.
Your scent that eats me alive!

The fruit under the dresser,
forgotten,
solid,
dry.

Your scent in all fruits.
Your feet marked on me.
The sound of your hair.

Everything in your hair is you,
even the scent of you
in my hair is you.
