Salty tears drip from my upper lip,
dotting my shirt like raindrops.
Vivid images of your indiscretion
burn in my mind's eye,
creating indelible pictures
that inflict indescribable pain
to my broken heart.
Our time together has abruptly ended.
Your emotionless words scream indifference.
I am too weak to remove this dagger
from my mangled heart.
So, I lay in a pool of betrayal,
praying for the strength to
delete you from my memory...
something I should have done years ago.
