Flood- A Dark Poem

Updated on January 4, 2013

Title: Flood


Peel the skin at the nail

The pinch absolves the security

When you’re thinking there’s much more to me

I’m just a shadow of what I used to be

And the grin retells each memory

The stains of a memory that wont scrub away

Bless the air we breathe, to simply believe

That one of these scars could be for something

Cause every grain of broken skin

Relives a time or moments sin

And I’m losing my grip on reality

The candle flickers in the dark

And the chill creeps along my fingertips

Cause the cold inside; slowly subsides

And I’m the same fragment of a whole nothing

Just waiting for a reason to breathe

This spider web of broken links

This emotion on the brink

Cause tears can only fall so far

And you can only catch so many

Until they turn into a flood
