The Rain Leaves a Scar

(#51/365)

 

Those petals that burned out for but a moment.

By an ice-cold flame, withered in the night.

Oh my precious, where am I?

I can't sneak out to hide in the sediment.

But I'm feeling you in that flickering light.

When I awoke in the morning, I had forgotten things that had stopped.

Aflood in a warm rain that gentle noise went away.

Why am I the only that cannot be washed away?

You're fading from my sight, my voice keeps choking up.

I can't yell anything.

I really don't like this one, but I am posting because I need to start catching up, for real now. I hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend. I've been doing a bit better. Yesterday, my husband and I had gone out driving and stopped at a field nearby and actually witnessed someone abandon their dog there. They dumped food out on the grass and the poor dog was running after their van looking like "where are you going?!". She was so terrified it was awful. With a bit of patience we rescued her. She's the sweetest dog. And I am so happy that my Grandmother decided to keep her! She just lost hers last week and wasn't looking to get another this quick, but couldn't let this little sweetie go. We're such suckers for animals. ;)
