Stain

Stain_IMG_0745

Let the rain wash away
the iron stain of DNA
laid so neatly beneath our feet.

Mouths gape open at the sky
tears flow free from glazed-over eyes
Tread lightly, my dreams died there.

Every moment
I shrink a little more.
Wash it all away,
The erosion of the core.
Time disintigrates,
The wind blows the rest away,
From that little place
Where it all died that day
Where it all died that day.

Capitulation, no heart will find
Terms now given from the mind:
Cease all beating, no love will grow there.

The shadow’s shape keeps taunting me,
Remnants of hope that used to be.
Imprisoned in there are broken pieces of me.

Every moment
I shrink a little more.
Wash it all away,
The erosion of the core.
Time disintigrates,
The wind blows the rest away,
From that little place
Where it all died that day.
