This morning I was digging around in a bag of Valentine's conversation hearts and found a few that spoke louder than most. A cinquain.

This morning
I found a week-old
candy heart that said
"I miss you" and tasted so
bitter

The taste
reminded me
of the time I ate
a candy heart without reading
the message

So often
I wonder what
it might have said, and if
it would have meant anything
to me

Funny,
how little things
like that invade your mind
and never let go, leaving
a bad taste
