Canker Sore
sahibtorun

I love the swirl of the angel hair pasta
 1
On dancing my tongue
 2
Under the candlelit dinner
 3
It happen
 4
The bite
 5
In half a breath
 6
A fleeting whimper
 7
But yet the ripples of the red wine
 8
Choose to remain still
 9
 
 
The next night
 10
I was drinking with the boys
 11
Every time I look at my phone
 12
I can feel uncertainty near
 13
The back of my throat
 14
You should always know your limit
 15
Speech under the influence will
 16
Hurt you more than others
 17
I knew that it was full blown
 18
The moment I broke the vow of silence
 19
A canker sore
 20
An inch across
 21
Words was not my friend
 22
Only nothing was my friend
 23
So go away Sun
 24
And your happy days
 25
Go away Moon
 26
And kissing couples
 27
Go away Regret
 28
I beseech you
 29
For you have rob me of my life
 30
Weighted me down by memories
 31
Of actions I did seasons ago
 32
 
 
The Legends said that I should rub salt
 33
The Apothecary said
 34
Such mortal drugs I have; but Mantua's law
 35
Is death to any he that utters them.
 36
Google said there is no cure
 37
Only time can heal the wounds
 38
They talk as if this
 39
Is some common plight
 40
But maybe there is some truth
 41
To this old wife’s tale
 42
Maybe an extreme measure
 43
To hasten the process
 44
So I looked
 45
Deep into the kitchen drawer
 46
Hidden in the forest of sharp metal
 47
As I remove the scared lid
 48
From this relic urn
 49
I took a pinch in my hand  
 50
And began the Holy Payer
 51
 
 
Rub salt and endure the pain
 52
rub salt and endure the pain
 53
rub salt and endure the pain
 54
rub salt and….
 55
 
 
Arghhhhhhhhhhh
 56
 
 
From that day forth
 57
My heart could only feast
 58
On blend bread
 59
