burden

why did it end and not return


left in black coal fields billowing clouds


blot out the sun


traces of hardship imbedded in the heart


with no relief we let ourselves go


tremble the trauma and unsightly sea


grey  and churning


the tail o' cat of memory against our backs


loves lashes come to submerge us


why cant why cant we see


another way out fron present reality


married together in ruin


breather the decay


smoke chimeys claw the grey sky


crow caws carry the pain


lost little ones sobbing to death


 


of unspeakable sins


stain the age and do not relent


release myself to your hands and no other


lay a lament at the doorsteps of tragedy


cluck the stone angels feet and howel like


a grief stricken beast


still no relief


burden to bare


though we all lose our grip


though


and through it all we both lose our grip
