The wreath.

The Wreath
I see a lady
with a purple hat,
I feel her soul
touch my mind,
she passes by,
a thousand words
are left behind
released from her
lonely world
to be absorbed
into mine,
I trace the imprint
of the crow
upon my weathered skin,
wipe the dripping ink
from my fingertips,
the burdens of the past,
I try desperately
to wipe away,
as I think of yesteryear,
the beauty of my world,
laying there,
a face I don’t recognize,
for now she’s dead,
the living,
the now,
the nether,
do you want to see……………… Rock!
do you want to see……………… Rock!
I scream within the silence
of my dreams
as I watch the lady
with the purple hat
leave her words
her verses lay at my feet,
as I buckle upon
the floor
leaving my world behind?
