Saltwater Tears

They wash away two years of pain,

Like a message in the sand

Fragile and cleansing

They remind where the pain is

Trickling and trailing

A river flows from my numb eyes

And lands on my hands

The guilt is ignited

A fire in my heart

Which reaches boiling point

Making my cheeks glow with shame.

Two years…

A nice memory

And some bad memories

Which like a family photo album

Gets passed around the council

In my head

It blurs by and I grimace

The saltwater tears

Can’t wash away those times

Or put out the fire

That will eventually

Corrupt me inside.
