A Soggy Life


So sadly saturated
Pale illuminated scene
Starring someone who is no one
Someone caught there in between

While life like wasted water’s
Dripping slowly through the seams
Of the lonely living loveless
Of the dreamer without dreams

Fair thee well, my fair and blameless,
Go ye gently on your way
Wring the sadness from your clothing
Hang to dry the sodden day

Soaked in lifedrops uncollected
Falling hard from cloudless skies
Washing clean your dull existence
Rinse and reuse your old lies

You can watch the puddles forming
As the love pools with your sin
You’ve been drenched with life
But still don’t dare to stop
And drink it in
