It’s Monday. You already know what it is. I’m sharing a poem today for #MondayMusings. It’s about short lived romances – the kind that start off all promising and sweet but then end quickly like you kinda knew they would all along. I promise next week I’ll write something a bit less melodramatic and jaded. I’ve been in my feelings, but I’m ready to come out of them 🙂 Hope you enjoy.
Yesterday, I lived in an ignorant bliss so sweet my teeth hurt
Jaw breakers seemed bitter in comparison
I swam in a pool of budding love
I allowed it to pour over me
It dripped like caramel from my tongue when I spoke of him
The syrupy taste of his presence
Sent me on a high I didn’t know I had been craving
My jaws hurt from smiling with him
Then came the break
Crackle. Pop. Fizz.
Today, he showed me what I already knew
Sugar highs aren’t worth the cavities
