Love Without

Written by: Sabina Nicole

I once knew a love that
Made air taste of honey,
His mere presence tickled
My belly.
His words made walls crumble
Instantly.  Leaving an open space
For him to graze.  But just as a wolf 
Would consume their own litter, He 
Quickly ingested all that I had 
To give. This man in a mask, exposed
 His true light, while turning off
 My switch.  After weeks of spring mornings
Came bitter winters, that froze
The waters of my soul.
Now echoes of laughter are
Whispers of regret, the truth
Slit his twine from my heart.
