Lay Not On That Sheet

Tags: ex, tender, love, pain

My ex still has the sheet I gave him to put on his bed when he didn't do laundry for 2 months.

Lay not on that sheet
for the memories that lie within
press tender on your sores.

Lay not on that sheet
as the pages close upon us
and our toil draws a blank.

Lay not on that sheet.
It is not wise in the least
to tempt what’s held in thread.
