Bathing in Salt

by JoJo

Whenever I close my eyes,

I think of the wedding.

I think of the diminished roses that I cradled to my chest.

I think of how my heart pumped ferociously in my throat, darting for an exit.

I don't know what told me so.

Was it the way my father looked at me with eyes that sparked a nervousness within me?

Was it the way that I saw you the night before, wishing a good night?

I saw the ashen look on my mother's face the next day.

Maybe it was the ghost of a flower that wilted in me.

Months later, I hear from friends that you've gone back to your old ways.

And I wonder if I meant anything to you in the first place.
