Your name
So sweet on my lips it used to be
Like warm, melted honey
Dripping off
The corners of my mouth
Your name
Sent shivers up my spine
Such a natural high
I got from saying
Your wonderful name
But now
The taste of your name
Lingers on my tongue
Like sour milk
Warm and chunky
A most unpleasant taste
Your name
Makes my stomach turn
The very sound
Of your repulsive voice
Makes my head pound with
I scream your name
It always tastes the same
I wish I could get this taste
Out of my mouth
Almost as much as I wish
I could get you
Out of my head
