Embedded Stain 

I’ve tried

to wash off the salt from my wounds

I’ve tried

to walk on the sand barefoot

I’ve tried

to walk off the crippling pain

I’ve tried

to walk on the edge of my reality

I’ve tried

to walk off the circling buzz

I’ve tried

to walk on my monumental mistakes

I’ve tried

to walk off my stumbling ignorance

I’ve tried

to walk on the road to peace

I’ve tried

to walk off the forgiveness

But I can’t

I can’t seem to look at me

    1. Yes, although this isn’t necessarily about me but that is the premise of it. I write from all perspectives. It’s written this way to perhaps resonate and seeing someone own these words as they read it. I don’t put too much of myself on the blog.
