What Does a Broken Heart Smell Like?

Empty Bed

Outside it smells like cheating
Inside it smells like rain
Thoughts of you smell like red wine and tissue
Smells like drinking
Smells like crying
Smells like pain

The shower smells like shampoo
The bedroom smells like games
It smells nothing like’ll be fine without you
More like sleeping
And like dying
Smells like pain

And the scent of your voice still echoes
Even when the TV’s on
And the neighbors
They still ask me how you’re doing
I don’t have the heart to
Tell them
That you’re
Gone
As the smell of you lingers on

Seeing my friends smells like faking
Seeing your friends smells like blame
Someday they’ll bottle up this broken heart perfume
Smells like leaving
Smells like lying
Smells like pain

And the scent of your voice still echoes
Even when the TV’s on
And the neighbors
They still ask me how you’re doing
I don’t have the heart to
Tell them
That you’re
Gone
As the smell of you lingers on

Outside it smells like cheating
Inside it smells like rain
Thoughts of you smell like red wine and perfume
Smells like leaving
Smells like lying
Smells like pain

It smells like I may never see you again.
