You Left A Bitter Aftertaste

Jeremy Bishop

You were like coffee
on cold autumnal mornings
that repeatedly burnt my tongue

because I was too eager to feel your warmth
to wait until you had cooled

so I wasn’t surprised
it took me a while
to get your name out of my mouth

for you were one
to always linger
long after you had gone. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
