Sedimentary Stone.

The outline of your jaw

tells me stories I spend days questioning.

Your tongue, my mind

makers of their own demise.

All I ever ask for is honesty-

When the dark parts of you

encased your spine

leaving you without a backbone

I was still here, holding you up.

But you chose deceit instead of honor.

These lies they spill from your mouth

like the trickling of a well

and I am consumed by the sound.

Repeating and repeating-

How can you not see the impact?

You are an ocean of love for me

but cannot seem to keep me from drowning-

I cannot trust a goddamn thing

And as the waves return to the sea,

your words give way to silence.
