Dripping

Written by: POETESS DARKLY

In my heart an irritation is growing.
Like a drop of water flowing.
Growing more annoying.

*drip*

As my ears strain for the next drop.
My mind begs for it to stop.
Peace of mind it's destroying.

*drip*

In my soul search I have found.
The source of the sound.
Crimson torrent like a flood.

*drip*

Betrayal keeps it open, pain grows.
Like a dripping faucet it flows.
Try as I may, I can't stop the blood.

*drip*
