Tips for a clean breakup

 

 

First, fumigate

Your cell walls fresh-free

of their love.

 

Second.

 

Odious

poison barbed

bitter nothings

must be dumbly plucked from each pink pore,

thrown to landfill,

labelled 'Hazardous biowaste, may cause hideous burns'.

 

Third, make re-chaste your newly bleach-scoured bone and blotted clean flesh 

with a sore blessing of Domestos and clov...

Pain

You lie awake in bed with your eyes swollen from the tears and the pain

Either too much to handle

Or not enough

But always cast aside

 

Anger will not manifest

Her l...
