Poetry On Odyssey: Food for Thought

Just another poem by yours truly.

Poetry On Odyssey: Food for Thought

I hate the taste of coffee

Except when it's on your lips.

The smell reminds me of coffee dates

And simpler times.

The smell of cherries reminds me of the soap

In your parents' bathroom.

Only when it disappears is my mind

Free from memories your home brings.

The sound of chopping vegetables scream

Family dinner nights.

The smell of onions wafts through the air

Making me cry over no more family meals.

Lemons in water haunt my dreams

Just because that's your mom's favorite drink.

The smell is that of cleaning supplies and

Thoughtfulness for a fancy brand of water.

It's hard going through the grocery store

And being reminded of what used to be.

But I wouldn't want to change a thing,

Except for the fate of you and me.

Our time was cut too short,

By parents and accidents and life.

The past can't be changed,

But hopefully, I can change my future.
