Salty Tears (Poetry)

“Salty Tears” is yet another poem torn from the pages of spiral notebooks. 

“Salty Tears”

Do you salt your hearts 
Before you swallow them whole?
Cause it stings a little 
Every time I talk to you

I hear a tear in your voice 
Put there to garner my sympathy
Perfect bait for the crushing of me
Feast on my blood long as you can

One day I will pull away
I will forget you but never the pain
Of pulling my heart out of your throat
The marks of your fangs remain

The scars tissue reminds me
Of mistakes I’ll never make again
The man trap catches no more
My brand new life can begin

No more victims to feed your lust
Here I stand a victim of your broken trust
That you never should have
Leaving me to rust
