Her rotting teeth

She wanted to confess

To tell him so badly

But the words were stuck

Like toffee in teeth

And she could feel them

Festering there

Peeling back the enamel

Rotting into gum

Yet she could not admit

Could not spit them out

Because the words were worse

Too unimaginable

Unbearable

And a rotting tooth

Is better than a rotting heart
