Deep breath, a familiar smell..
smell of him.. 
the memory latches onto the smell 
till i find him.. n there he is

trace of a past long gone by, 
feelings that once maybe..
untraceable though,
but the smell..
how else would i identify

The first rains
we soaked in together,
the masala chai we cheered together
the touch of his hand 
that feeling..
i feel it no more.

How do u reference to something
which mattered so much at one point..
how does it slip away 
you are the same person,
aren't you?

But the smell haunts me
the whiff takes me back
as I sneeze away the choke of it
he crosses my path
just like time did..
