Breathing the memory

The last kiss lingered on in my memory
And your presence filled the empty room
The suffocating silence surrounding me saddened my lonely soul.
The smell of your sex, of your body, the smell of you is in the room.  
I have washed it several times, 
but your smell lingers relentlessly, repetitively, reinforcing the memory.

    Damn. I'm having the same problem. In the room, in the bathroom and the showers. I might have to make new memories to fight the old ones.
