Washed Away


It's hard to tell
what exactly is streaking my face
the water pouring over me
or the water leaving my eyes

Trying to use the scolding hot water
use it to wash away everything
the world
the pain

The warm water
running over me
then to the drain
taking nothing with it

The cool water
flowing into the drain
none of the pain circling with it
no matter how much I want it to

The cold water
making me shiver
numbing me
inside and out

Ice cold water
freezing my veins
finally ridding me of pain
leaving nothing

The only sign of life
is the slight shiver
I get when I think of what happen
when I think of her.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
