Caffeinated Roses

Dried tears fall from my face
on to the wet pavement
wet from the years of agony
I don’t slip anymore

I used to fall  all of the time
Now my skin flakes off
melting before it hits the ground

My existence is fading
regressing into the earth
paper hearts always fail

Warm embraces fade

Skin falls apart
Life decomposes
Your signature kiss
falls below the roses.

Lined Mugs
