Petrichor

It began as a sweet aroma,

It began as a sweet aroma, Of scented landscapes,

It began as a sweet aroma, Of scented landscapes, Amalgamated aromas.

Tripping into eternity,

Tripping into eternity, They were drenched

Tripping into eternity, They were drenched In tipsy kisses

Tripping into eternity, They were drenched In tipsy kisses As the soil beneath them sang praise.

But all stories do not end well,

But all stories do not end well, The hush settled in

But all stories do not end well, The hush settled in After the sky emerged to cry.

Inhaling fragrances of love

Inhaling fragrances of love That soon turned sour

Inhaling fragrances of love That soon turned sour with

Inhaling fragrances of love That soon turned sour with hunger.

The droplets humming

The droplets humming On all window panes

The droplets humming On all window panes Drowned out muffled

The droplets humming On all window panes Drowned out muffled shouts.

The droplets humming On all window panes Drowned out muffled cries.

The droplets humming On all window panes Drowned out muffled screams.

His fingers tore,

His fingers tore, her eyes leaked,

His fingers tore, her eyes leaked, Like the azure above them.

A once mellifluous meeting

A once mellifluous meeting Now reeked of his bad intentions,

A once mellifluous meeting Now reeked of his bad intentions, (Along with the whisky on his breath.)

And once he was done with his deeds,

And once he was done with his deeds, He melted back into the shadows

And once he was done with his deeds, He melted back into the shadows Of a world that turned a blind eye.

So every time she witnessed

So every time she witnessed The first rains of the season,

So every time she witnessed The first rains of the season, Her nose tingled with

A peppery perfume

A peppery perfume Of water

A peppery perfume Of water bleeding

A peppery perfume Of water bleeding into dry cracks

A peppery perfume Of water bleeding into dry cracks And sour odours on his breath.
