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....

Nicely done Shari. so many applicable avenues of interpretation. Time may pass but the intensity of emotion will always be beneath the surface. thanks for entering the contest

Wow! What an awesome metaphor using residue to explain that "not quite over you" feeling. Good soup! Welcome to poetrysoup!
