Your Sorrow Bleeds

Your Sorrow Bleeds Into Mine

Your sorrow bleeds into mine
Memories  merge, and turn to muddy shades
Like paintings spoiled by angry children
Mix it all together
Purple into black and blue
Bruises on a wounded soul
Do not clean the brushes of bitterness
Let the world see
Let them see the tear stained past
Let them weep....
Let them now bear the shame of their blindness

Scribbles and swirls of bleeding beggars
Oh how we begged, you and I and ,and too many others
Abandoned blots, on the snowdrift landscape of society
Black Blemishes in pigtails
Broken little boys afraid to grow
They washed us away
Washed their hands of us
And the colours of our souls went down the drain
With the guilt,,, secrets swilled away

And your sorrow bleeds into mine
And mine is merged with yours
And his,,, and hers,,and theirs
And The tears of babies still to weep
Into the deafness,
They fall through the ribcage of my carcase
Where the maggots of apathy
Devoured dignity
And drip into the puddles of our failed humanity

Author notes

How many times will people turn away from the obvious
This is for all of those whos sorrow seeps into mine

Its time to stand up and say enough

Powerful, poignant, passionate perspective - perfect. What a 'treasure'

Sensitive topic and a strong subject told in a way that makes you sit back and think. And feel for the children who have to suffer through this.
