Open Pain - Poem by A.J. McKinley
Once upon my mind.
Memories whispered in kind.
A gift of open faith.
Truths steeped in hate.
A broken bird with wings of tears.
Shattered happiness has marked my years.
Spirit bound in gloominess rage.
Another tear has marked this page.
Wisdom found in a curious stance.
Love found but without a chance.
Ignorance abounds in brilliant shrouds.
Sorrow resides in characterless clouds.
Once upon a thoughtless kiss.
A dreamer made a fruitless wish.
Forever declined her wish did die.
Grace has landed and my spirit cries.
