Chalky Aftertaste

Chewing on this relationship
Grinding down all the cute phrases
Whispered in one night
Leaving it a fine powder
Coating my tongue
The words got caught in between my teeth
I drank down every excuse
Each sip another manufactured reason
I stayed, sitting
Next to you
You kissed me goodnight
As you did every night
And I found
It left a chalky aftertaste
In place of I love you
