Aftertaste

The harsh bitterness

Of the once sweet rain

We danced and made loved in

On far too many days

Now only reminds me of

The immense pain

An unending smothering

A fire too quickly extinguished

I felt, as you were leaving

For a love you said was destined

Long before you ever kissed, me

Long before you said the same

When you first stole my heart

And I- freely let it go- to you

How else, could I feel- now

And if nothingness had a flavor

Surely, I was- that, inexplicable sour

My fruit of love- withering away

In the depth of darkness

In that place in my heart

Where you…once came
