Stanzas: Monthly Chapbooks February 2015: Anti-Love - Page 10
As you fester and boil
The love grows.
Brewing, growing stronger
With every passing second.
There are times when we don’t agree,
Times when you’re too hot
And I wait for you to cool
Or times when I forget about you
And you grow cold and bitter
So I drain you.
Know that I will never turn truly away from you
Coffee can piss off
No matter how bitter or cold you get,
I can always reboil the kettle and wait,
Tea, you are my moth
And I am your flame.
