Discarded Love

I have now learned
that the taste of discarded love
is the one that lingers longest
on the tongues of those
that fill their mouths
with desire and want.

Blessed be the love
but damned be those that live
for unseen worlds held tightly
in teeth that clench
and tear the flesh
and rend the heart.
