Love Lingers

Love lingers
On the tip of your tongue
The stench of it washing off slowly
Almost making it unbearable
To open your eyes

Love lingers
In your heart
In the holes in which it has burrowed
Life seeping out behind it
Oozing out of every orifice

Love lingers
On these hands that once held him
Under blue waters
Forgetting his touch
And reliving his kiss

And love lingers
In my guilt
It lingers in my blood
Stinging my heart with every pass by
Killing me slowly

And soon after,
will this love too, die
