new hope letters

how do you feel
after all the ink and paper you ate
the blue dripping from the corners of your lips
running down your chin

how many letters will it take
all the time spent upset about the rain
the shine in your eyes was traded in for a
black tar fall and

how people often ask
where you are and if you’re well
I just stand there with a broken smile
and for you I

how long is this hurt
memories are hard to burn
and all the ashes make such a mess
of distant dust and

how I hold onto hope
that you will find your way
the long lost face of a friend I had
before the brainwashing
