On Betrayal

Teeth seep into flesh

sinking

down

to

bone

The mouth you kissed

just moments before

Comes back to your kindness–

Eating into your hand.

 

Small prices paid

Each and every day:

nuzzling closer into your arms;

Morphing into tears as we fall into bottomless pits.

 

Our eyes shine up from the dirt floor

Naked, you left us scorned
