Lost in Ink Stains

My words are lost in ink stains 
Verses smudged in prints of you 
Illegible scribbles soon fill in lines 
Once paved with love anew  
Now only paperless pain ensues 

An unnatural sequence of thoughts
Scribed in distressed hues of blue
Will re-actively release your grip 
But the pain it can’t undo 
Now only agony grew

My heart hands weep writes of tomorrow  
My paper and pen are tempered in sorrow
My emotions bellow wallows 

Of a mournful mind  
I pray
This too 
Shall pass
In time…

    Oh Walayee, So quickly tears filled my eyes. If only you knew how powerfully I recognize your words and what they are saying! I have been in this place... "my heart hands weep writes of tomorrow" painful, and beautiful. Thank-you. x Peace, Ruby
