I Remember Love

The heady rush
Of lip to lip

That churned my gut
With borrowed bliss

Oh, yes, mad love
The hit, the miss

As you threw up
I craved a kiss

Remember touch?
So sticky sweet

The smell of lust
And dirty sheets

Those instant blues
A bitter flood

Left feeling used
With red hot blood

The universe
That chewed and chewed

And spat us out
With love to spare

As though you’d tasted
Salty doubt

No appetite
To feel, to care

And in the end
So sad, so sore

No room for lovers
