Three Grams of Sugar

Three Grams of Sugar

written by: Robin McNamara

A sugar cube weighs
Three grams.
Your sweetened lies
Weigh the same as
A sugar cube.

Dissolved on my tongue
Bitter sweetness,
Deep eyes of deception
As black as the untouched
Cold coffee.

Your love dissolved –
Like a three grams
sugar cube…
