Lesson Learned

Silently she waits

her words lay

within her mouth;

letting them fall.

His echoed

back at her like

falling crimson petals

of crystal shards

nicking flesh,

left strewn

upon the floor.

velvet ribbon

unravels in hand,

pressed to lips,

bittersweet desire.

chocking back

an ocean of words,

that now fall within

a single tear,

cooling burning

cheek
