One Set of Tears

Swept by medicated vision,

you rested next to me,


A downpour of eyes

on my streets.

Entangled in sheets

and rubbing feet

while smiles provided

liberation from the madness;

We went off

on lovers' tangents.

But the sedatives

wore off

and I coughed myself awake

to notice

the salty puddle of realization

decorating only one pillow.
