my cold dead heart


 
my cold dead heart  
remembers to forget the melodies  
we once hid inside  
 
my lips betray me however  
and i make porcupined air bubbles  
of the lyrics where you slipped on my skin  
 
i forget to remember  
 
there are holes in the walls  
where memories used to hang  
with promises of forever  
 
as the dirge plays on  
 
I don't ask for salvation  
nor forgiveness  
 
just the sweet wet crackle  
of my showering on your grave  
as you watch
