Rain-Soaked Paper

Words on paper
mix with tears silently
loosed from years
of open scars upon my mind,
reflecting a torn soul
within the mirrored labyrinth
of my barely beating heart.

The paper cries as it tears
under the point of my pen
through the waterfall
streaming down my face…

the rains of despair
drench my sorrows in hopelessness.

…as quickly as they were written,
the words are gone,
crumbling into the water
as I fall with them,
seeking the solitude of death
while chasing the floating words
which can never be read again.
