The perfume you left
has since changed colors; still I
can't bear touching it.

"You must not ever stop being whimsical. And you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life."

I absolutely love how short and filled to the brim this is.

This poem is a good example of show don't tell. Who is the author talking about? Who's perfume is it? Why can't you touch it? It leaves the audience with questions but I think it also reveals a great story. Great poem!
