30/30 Day 21-Signature

I signed my name

With a blue 

Crayon, and the oil

Clung to your fingertips

As you tried to wipe it away

Smeared a dark blue spot

Upon the crisp white

Paper heart

And you asked me why

Over and over

Lies sound more desperate

Repeated, and I said

Remember when you told me

You loved me

Then disappeared 

Into layers of excuses

For not staying

The fiction of your mouth

Spewed false promises

And each kiss

More fatal than the next

So why I asked you

Would I sign my soul over

To the likes of you?
