Poetry Thursday #3

More emo. Inspired a little bit by Ani DiFranco. Written 03/04/03

Less Pale

the rain paints the side
walk a deeper
shade of grey
I scan the sky
and try to smile
as I lean against
this building bare
blacktop streams
from beneath
my leaden feet
towards forgotten miles,
whispered goodbyes,
and burning eyes
I stretch my chest
expose my bones,
my dripping heart
I pray the rain
will stain it dark
erase these scars
and leave my soul
less pale
