You were Not routine Dental work

The worst Part
of losing you
is that _________


Not some
Superficial filling
I could replace.

You were that
Real enamel Deal.


Over the years,
I’d developed
Quite the sweet
Tooth; taking
Bigger Bites than
I Could chew.


I ached from
Your erosion
For Months;

Numbing myself
For Your extraction.


You Didn’t
leave a
minor cavity.

I required
A full-blown
root canal.

My nerves laid raw in
the deepest parts of
me from your loss.


You were ripped
from my mouth
and placed back
into that of another.

I have
No right
to be sad

Only sad writes;
Gumming at
Our leftovers.
