Haunting 

Something as simple as a smell

Can send me back  

To that helpless child 

I thought I had left behind.

With shaking hands 

And a heart beat in my ears 

I realize 

It’s still haunting me.

No matter where I go 

It’s clinging to me.

Not only in dreams 

Does it consume me.

One smell 

And childhood becomes 

My reality once more.
