Words Off My Lover's Tongue

Day 13

Prompt: Write a confession poem.

Words off My Lover’s Tongue

In your belly, lies slept waiting
to belch up the whole truth
and nothing but the truth.
After spilling the beans,
I was left with the heartburn.
I assumed you would choke too.
Instead, I did.
I wished you had the hiccups---
just for me to reject your crooked letters .
Somehow, I managed to construct a
new airway by holding my breath
to hear you out as you compare me to her.
You titled me exclusive---
just to say you love her more.
I say, you only wanted to taste
my love until it chew out.
But I refuse to digest
in your chronicles of obsession and lies.
