She shed rose water From showering eyes, Leaving duress upon the caress, Contemplating futures, Where all I meant to go Was one step backwards To where I began. The meaning of all I have lost On this road of no miles Leaves hearts wide open, My heart Filled with the filth Of a thousand perplexities. Her eyes, Her skies, Her waters, Her sobering To the sounds of birds with wings, While I feed the area across The lake, with mildew. Love wishes Sounds to escape From panicked hearts. I bleed what I hold In hands that face the mercy Of a thousand lacking waves Upon the surface That leaves me Shattered. What would the world do?
