Saltwater Sadness

blood, sweat, tears-

mingle with the eyes of before

and mountains of secrets

hiding the truth behind

crumbling to ash

until only dust remains

and the rain is falling now,

thundering, hail clattering

down, lighting ripping apart

everything in sight.

misery more than i can know,

more than the

naked eye can see.
