Your words set like vile behind my eyes

Seeping slowly into my brain

Obscuring my vision of who I thought you were

Long warming thoughts of what was never to be

Permeating my memory with unpleasant aftertastes

Bleeding my final notes onto my bed sheets

Fast and hard like shooting stars

We burned out just as quickly

Leaving a trail of tears like ashes

Grasping fists and biting teeth

Joyful moans played out like the cello

All forgotten and betrayed

As you walk away happy and I’m left with the aroma of unrequited like love
