Going Up

via Daily Prompt: Perfume

I get onto the elevator and take you in

your perfume lingers where you stood

moments before I came into your scent

beckons a ghost on the edge of mem’ry

the ease of a love I once knew

I push the button to take me up

as mem’ries of her push to the front

another lover waits on 5 with her own scent

but for these next few seconds

I’m lost in the fragrant reminiscence

of a soft skin touch and supple breasts

where her perfume lays to rest
