that will never come out

i have wasted so much time
i have kept living
but i’ve never found an explanation
to why i have been kept waiting
waiting for the pain to go away
i kept working at it
greeting it with talk and tears
treating it with shame
and still it was there
yesterday morning
the Sun sparkled on the puddles in the yard
and with those fairy dances came
a glimmer of knowing
the pain is really just a stain
that will never come out
when i accept its permanence
i will color it a different way
i will turn it into art

that will never come out
