Salt

You sprinkled your cold stare like salt

onto the cut on my heart, a sordid

wound that reeked of good-byes,

a smell strenuous and uncouth that

lingered by the side of my pillow

every night, in which I dreamed

about forgetting you, and it stayed,

like an unwanted pregnancy,

brooding and growing

to become something that was

even

more

real.
