Lilac and Honey


They are sweet in your mouth
All lilac and honey
Rolling across your tongue in soft, tender waves
You feel them dissolving
Melting on your taste buds
Those words that are a desperate kind of lie
A sugary sickness that his eyes are asking you for
Three words
If you could just say them
Three little words
Lies, yes
But a poison that would hurt him less than the bullet of silence
He's looking at you
Eyes glazed over with the hope of those words
And you can feel them
Warm on the back of your tongue
Like hot molasses pouring down your throat
Yet you swallow them
Because though their string might be a sweeter death
You'd rather murder him than send him to sleep
With an addiction you can't feed
