A salty drop

A cheek so pail to see

So soft to touch

So sweet to taste

Wiped away by a hand

Nails of black

Skin hard

Skin calloused

It rolls down a wrist

Covered in scars

Scars of truth

Scars of hidden pain

Licked away by a tongue

Taste of salt

Eternal sweet taste

Eternal tears on my tongue.
