Tag Archives: salt


she kissed away your tears

now her lips are wet

with salt and pain

Did she chase away your demons?

or are they dancing with her own?

I’m not sure how this will ever work

when you don’t hold the monopoly

on grief

she can comfort you

or comfort herself

but she isn’t strong enough

for both

and she really should

lay off the salt
