Dirt on the Casket

Written by: Johnathon Souders

Handful of damp earth
Bitterness that thick.
Mind in momentum tone,
Churning out a high pitch.

Dirt on the Casket

I don a new nights ocean
With muff-pillow screams.
"What if's" I spoke,
Teasing a dead hope.

Dirt on the Casket

Incoherent your compassion
Un-hearted goodbye, and sighs.
Keeping it stone, when speaking,
To me on insecure knee.

Dirt on the Casket

Lawyers, new toy, child support.
Telling of friendship, waiting papers.
Faster it mentally creeps,
The twisting on betrayal.

Dirt on the Casket
The Hard, is letting it hit the lid.
