Day 494: diamonds

leave your taste there
under my skin where
everything waits
until it is forgotten
until you are gone
teach me to remember

there are secrets we wear in our lips like constellations
they are diamonds that your tongue cannot dull
your teeth cannot crack
perfection that cannot be pieced
i spend my days wondering how many days i've wandered
picking at the rhinestones in my gums
bleeding myself into sanity
kissing you into memory
like its something i can wear under my skin

like its something that cannot be lost
will not be forgotten
