for years i focused only on the good of life ( perfume smelled good ) then for a bit i focused on the negative ( perfume burned my nose and smelled bad ) now i focus on the bittersweetness of life. the good and bad and find beauty in it all. perfume smells.....period. haha. and its bad for your health......but do people listen? no. haha. oh yeah the beauty in this lies the truth.
