An Unforgettable Psyche

Caroline is an artist, designer and writer. She has written for several online and print publications.


There are places

Scents and feelings

That are unforgettable

To your psyche

They show up

In your dreams

Maybe you have visions

Of them

When least expected

Or you just shift

To who you were

At that time in your life

They are instances

Where you might

Find the real you

Where you connect to

Your soul

To that part of yourself

That was left behind

During that time

That part of yourself

True Self

Who still lives

in your psyche

Hi Caroline. I enjoyed your poem. It really is amazing how a scent or an image can bring our minds back to a place in time. I love the scent of the forest. It takes me back to my childhood memories in my home town. I hope you're staying safe and healthy.
