some call it
liquid courage
but i call it
liquid misery
as it trickles down
my throat all i can
remember is the touch
i no longer have
your smile, the way
your eyes curl up
matching your lips
i still have your words
sweet and reassuring
but they aren’t you
can’t replace the feel
of your arms around me,
of your kiss on my skin.
someone hide the bottle
there’s only so much
a girl can take.

toes curled amongst grains
of not quite white sand
the air is light but not
clean smoke billowing
the sun hasn’t risen complete
evidence of a curl of smile
the salt is heavy
tongue smoothing over
jagged crystals.
miles away from a signal
i close my eyes
and slip away
