MY SENSE OF SMELL
I have been gifted with a strong sense. I can sense fear, love, danger and losing stuffs etc etc.But when it comes to the sense of smell, I can say I have more than needed sense of smelling things. I normally smell anything I eat. The food first goes into near my nose and then come a step down to reach my mouth. I love the smell of the things I use, eat, drink and write.
My senses all are strange
And it really makes me change.
I like the smell of things
Those frighten others.
I smell those things
Those others find weird.
I like the smell of the hot water,
But, I hate the smell of the toothpaste.
I love the smell of the New Book,
But, I hate the smell of an Ink.
I love the smell of an Old book,
But, I hate the smell of an old cloth.
I like smell of the Rain,
And I like the Smell of a Medicine box
The Smell of an old lady, Smell of the bread,
Smell of the babies. Smell of the hospitals.
And the list goes on…
I love my sense of smell for many reasons. I can smell things which aren’t here. For a fact, my memories start with the smell. I can smell people. I can smell my boyfriend when he isn’t around.
Magical thinking!! Yes I experience this every time.
Today, I am busy working at my desk, surrounded by ringing phones, clacking keyboards, hissing fax machine, flickering monitors. From nowhere I smelt my Boyfriend. Strange!?
I do smell him, in a crowded bus; I turn around and search if he is in the bus. Nope, he is just in my memories.
I think & recall those times, when I have smelt him in this way. I strikes to me that I should post it in the daily post forum. I open the page and I see the post already. I was the 176th person to like that post. And I started to write about it.
And I love my Sense of Smell.
