Jasmine,

it always sounded pretty.

Beautiful, like you.

So I always imagined

the scent on your skin

to be jasmine.

I loved the perfume you used.

It reminded me of

laying in the grass

a warm summer's day

a picnic in the backyard

a swim in the pool

eating snow cones

That's what jasmine was to me.

We left each other not too long ago

I still remembered the smell of jasmine

But today, I went to the store

and picked up a bottle

of something called Jasmine.

It made me gag.
