Sidewalk Chalk


162: Sidewalk Chalk by Lilliva-Dast


I poured this concrete
Mixed together
The burden of love
With the sandy
Salt of reason
And the
Soft sweet liquid
Of babes who would
Never understand
It churned
Inside me
Until it grew too toxic
To hold in
I poured this concrete
Stepped in
Waded out
Until it hardened
All around me
I’ll spend my nights
Coloring pictures
Of what true love is
And lying
About the color
Of the chalk
