This Isn't A Love Story

For me,

The taste of hope

Became coffee and stale, roll up cigarettes

Licked from his lips

Relished at ungodly hours

In the waking moments

Of the darkness.

When the comfort of the velvet curtain of the night

Was torn away

To reveal an empty stage,

A cold, grey, glassy dawn,

I soon learned

The bitter taste of disappointment

Was one and the same.

They both still dance on my tongue.

I can't tell which brings me more peace.
