Leathery Love

by Soodabeh Saeidnia

How can I forget the day
you tempted me with that soft, brown
skin and half opened, silver zipper
on your neck
I touched your cozy, black hears
and held your strong legs, the way Scarlet begged,
"Don't leave me alone!"
Please, in all the freezing winters ahead!
Then, you promised, even guaranteed
to keep my heart warm and hopeful
the way all the hot coffees in the world
poured into my cup
But like all the bastards, cheaters
and liars I've ever seen in the movies,
you broke my heart and let me feel
how slippery the ice road of loving is
You took out my passion's root
I'm not going to open your box this year
and go shopping for a new leather boot
