Break-up Aesthetics Part 1

Crimson lipstick marks, perfume on his clothes,

A chasm between us was opening

As barren as his fawning composes.

Exposed by hush whispers betokening

That he will leave behind tear-stained pillows,

Bitter nostalgia and shredded chattels.

Sad songs about split-ups blasts through earphones,

Mascara streaks for ancient romances,

Photographic remnants are set alight

As cherry ice-cream dribbles down one’s chin.

Follow his cyber footprints late at night,

Dump sugary cute teddys in the bin,

Be green-eyed at girls in romance novels

With drowned griefs in emerald wine bottles.
