Hangover

last night wasn’t the first time i’ve dreamt of you

but i have never before woken

with such a lingering sadness on my tongue

that tastes of all the words we left unsaid

and my head heavy with memories

i attempted to forget, long ago–

yet i know it is no one’s fault but my own

for lying awake until 5 in the morning

allowing myself to be intoxicated

by far too many thoughts of you.

    This is my favourite!! You’re so talented, I wish I thought of that one myself lol! A great, evocative piece.

  2. Wow, such heaviness. Love the line about sadness on your tongue that tastes of all the words we left unsaid. Those really are the heaviest to carry and leave us with a bad taste in our mouths. You really know how to capture a sentiment that leaves a big impact on the reader.
