In this place, I can’t remain
With fading words I can’t sustain
The thought of sun, won’t stop the rain
One more refrain – like lidocain
So much, I’ll never appertain
The wishes caught in lockless chains
I wish for more, yet reap the same
Another stain – I can’t explain
I watch the water circle drains
A storm of red from wounded veins
So am I ill, or am I sane?
Shall I abstain, or seek to claim?
My eyes upon the window pane
Adrift in stillness and disdain
Seeking hope I can’t retain
I hide the pain I entertain
