unsaid [pretentious poem #2]

[and an old one, too, from 2009]

unsaid

all the words i’d like to say
have fallen between the lines.
all the tears you shed are now
salt on the desert land of my heart.
there’s no sympathy:
only your reaching hand as i walk away.

the flavour of this dark night lays on my lips.

i turned my back on you long before this day,
long before i woke up after dreaming of flowers
and tasting bright dead stars;
long before i longed for your touch
to calm down the monsters on my mind;
before drowning the little girl i used to be
in the swamp of my innocence;
before believing in unhappy endings
and sinking in my putrid hopes:

i gave up on you the moment i loved you.
