Insatiable like an ice cream cone on a hot summer day,
now you’re just a marshmallow
felt good sleeping on velvety sheets
now I’m walking on coarse sand
hurting my feet.
used to be clear and vivid like
the blue flawless skies,
nothing but everlasting lies-
hard to say goodbye.
sparkling like the finest bottle of champagne,
today I only hear
the gushing pouring rain.
deliciously sugary like the best cupcake picked,
somehow I just flavor
your salty river lips.
enjoyed the romantic aromas of a worth’s day spent,
today I just have memories with a sweet-melancholic scent.
