This could be the end...

This scent – it takes me back to you and me
So quick; I’m overcome
I convulse
At the very thought of your warm, dark skin

Its not a fashionable scent this one
It’s a very comfortable, lived-in one
It’s the smell of you every day that I knew you
Every day that I thought would be the rest of our lives

This morning you walked into my dream uninvited
You were the same you, yet somehow different
You spoke about the new ‘her’ in your life
And I couldn’t take my mind off your promises
Of there being no other—besides me…

Music almost always accompanies this scent
A lovely, soulful riff
Just like you
This time around, somewhere in the background, someone is singing—‘This could be the end’
And I am surprised
For I wish it is—the end
I wish you’d leave
I wish you wouldn’t live in this scent anymore
I wish you hadn’t grown tired of me
I wish you weren’t so indiscreet
I wish for so much
That sometimes I wish I didn’t know how to wish…

Thats a sad poem... :(

Here is a joke to cheer you up :

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson goes on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend.

‘Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”

I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes,” replies Watson.

“And what do you deduce from that?”

Watson ponders for a minute.

“Well, astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

“Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. What does it tell you, Holmes?”

Holmes is silent for a moment. ‘Watson, you idiot!” he says. “Someone has stolen our tent!”
