Sweet Nothing

You ripped my heart open then whispered, you’re beautiful

Throwing up honeyed words you shaped your mesmeric mask

Drawing me in you lifted soft lips to my ear

And breathed sweet nothing


Then you left me, beaten and wanting

My mangled heart greeted fresh air

The gashes cried my love and blood

Dripping them down among the dirt


The earth choked through the desecrated drops

Permeating the crust they mingled with clear water

Reservoirs grew nebulous with their dance

And furthered the forests
