This morning

I am


tangled sheets


clinging to the surface of your sea-salted skin.


Marred with bloody knees


from falling off the wagon,


and I know...


I must smell


like liquid regret


because last night,


my cup was always at least half empty.

and when you wake up,


I will tell you


all the ways I have to leave.


There will be potholes in my story,


and you will eventually describe me


as something to be avoided.

Wow. This is an phenomenal poem. If I weren't half asleep I could articulate better. Damn fine word choices.

Beautifully written morning-after poetry. It hurts my heart.

This is uncomfortable because it feels too true, but I can't deny its impact. Well said. Dark and self-effacing, but well said.
