stains of emotional residue

stains of emotional residue

stains of emotional residue....
remains hidden in the aftermath of the emotionaly laden war
buried within the emotional graveyard
stains of emotional residue....
negatively charged explosions
go off within the battlefield of the mind
stains of emotional residue....
never able to cleanse the soul 
of the residual feelings that linger 
after all these years
stains of emotional residue....
no amount of closure obtained
could ever wash away the pain of 
losing your love
the pain will always remain
within my heart as
stains of emotional residue....
