Sweet thing

How does love taste?
            
I often ruminate...
           
... years              
years have passed by              
since I have savoured                
its flavour          
              
aahh, it tastes... sweet                
(too saccharine for me to remember)              
                
that flavour lingered...danced upon                
 my taste buds              
... for sometime              
before I decided to brush away              
the debris                
...left by him              
I flossed                
scraped                
scrubbed                
away the remnant                
every bit of it...                
(with all my might)              
               
The residue    
of his so called love                
would had bred germs of              
pain and hurt              
creating a deep cavity                
of emptiness                
digging it's root                
into my soul...                
eating up    
the very essence    
of me              
               
               
I've heard                
cavity is dreadful
             
... a hellish pit                
where love and worth of              
oneself              
takes a plunge              
get stuck                
to its core                
and                
               
rot                
...rot                
rot                
until    
                
a despicable stench of                
self hatred, guilt                
and suicidal thoughts              
stale the air;              
the infections cause                 
soul decay                
               
tokens of betrayal                
—a dreadful shooting pain              
up the heart                
an exploding brain                
and a sharp, piercing        
sensitivity                
...to sweet things              
               
glad I rinsed away his taste              
but my tears precious              
didn't go to waste                
the saltiness finally subdued              
the sweetness              
               
I no longer have sweet tooth              
I gave up for good                
I have no desire                
for                
sweet things...
