11 (who?)
You have a nasty habit
of touching me where it bleeds,
ragged fingertips catching
rubbed-raw skin.

There's no scab there;
that wound has never healed,
festering yellow and oozing pusó

and each morning breaks
another plastic seal,
white bottles and tiny blue pills
leaving the bitter taste of almost-tragic
on my tongue.

Swallow dry;
that stuck feeling passes,
replaced by lethargy
and the diluted memories
of a time you made me happy,
when each morning broke
under a red sunset, the sheets
strewn around us.

It's fantasy now,
but I still feel the weight of you
during quiet moments.
this is a collab with the incredibly talented :icontwilightpoetess: please check out her version, as well, which can be found here: [link]

if you're not already watching her, please fix that.

Wonderful. Now that I think about it, a gone-sour lover does tend to feel like a wound that never heals. You go through the same routine to just make it scar already- the reluctance, the lethargy, the wish that you could just be past all of this already. Very relatable. Well done!
So relatable, which I think is the best thing about it... and it's written with thought, like you actually know someone like this, or you are someone like this... my point being it feels genuine = )

Thank you so much for working with me on this! I had a lot of fun collaborating with you; we should do it again in the future!

Also, that's the first time I've reshaped and remolded a piece so much in the collaborating process--I enjoyed the experience! :heart:
we should! this went so smoothly. it was more like writing with myself than someone else, haha.

maybe we can work on that scrap of mine another day x)

Yes, for sure! I'm always up for collaborating, so whenever you feel up to it, just let me know. ^.^
