monday said that you loved me.

he whispered this through broken teeth
and touched me with hands that were
crackled, like boiled eggs.

tuesday stole you.
her eyelashes batted too slowly
and i saw you leave,

but wednesday
brought you back to my door-
meek, wet, and disheveled,
clutching wilted roses.

thursday, ever tricky,
hid you in the orange grove with a lady
and no amount of april fools could convince me to stay.

friday let me cry at her bosom,
she stroked my hair and murmured lullabies
into tangled silk.

saturday was kind and gentle.
'fear not,' he said, and patted my hand.
'he will return.'
you did. saturday dragged you home
and draped you over our lovestained couch.


sunday was the meanest day.
he gave me bruises and whiskey-tinted kisses
all up my neck.
i was packed to leave,
but then

monday said that you loved me.
he whispered this through punched-out teeth
and touched me with hands that were
tainted, like last week's garbage,


so tuesday told me
"it's time to leave."

and wednesday, thursday, friday, and saturday
wished me luck on sunday as i boarded the train,
and the bruises on my neck were enough to hush her when


monday said that you loved me
(again).
My goodness... How depressing.

Just a quick submission before I leave you all. I'll be gone for most of tomorrow. :/
