Your Cheap Cologne

Your Cheap Cologne

A Poem by Chelsea Schermerhorn
"

about my wonderful boyfriend. I finally got to meet him last weekend.

"

You hug me so tight,

My face is pressed against your warm chest.

I breathe in deeply of your scent.

And that musky cheap cologne.

I think to myself,

“How can he smell this good?”

That cheap glass bottle of yellow liquid

Was only five dollars.

I breathe in deeper.

The smell is intoxicating;

The heavenly smell of you

And that oh so cheap cologne.

Forget Polo and Stetsen,

This fragrance is priceless.

This glorious smell of you

And your wonderful cheap cologne.

You bend farther down,

to hug me even tighter.

My head now rests on your shoulder

And the smell is so much stronger.

I can’t get over it.

You smell as though heaven should.

My knees grow weak and I start to fall

But your strong arms just hold me.

Why did you have to leave?

Two days is all I get?

It would have been more merciful

Not to have met you at all.

My heart is aching within my chest.

Tears are streaming down my cheeks.

All I can think of is you.

And that astonishing musky scent.

Are you thinking of me,

Two thousand miles away?

Two years I waited

Longing for your touch.

Now it’s gone

The weekend that changed so much

But so many things are left;

Your voice, your smell, your touch.

I want you to know, the love of my life, I love you so very much. Despite the pain, the tears, the absence, I had the greatest time of my life. I want you to know, that I will wait for you no matter what and that I will never forget the smell of you and your wonderful cheap cologne.
