STAINS STAY LIKE SIN


Layers of dust thicken
on the mirror water makes
the smuts prominent:
I wipe and wipe and yet
the stains stay like sin

    I like what you are saying here just think it needs different line breaks to make it easier to read. But that's just one thought. I could be wrong. (Report) Reply
