Never Clean


I wish I could just wash it away

Everything that ever hurt

Let each ounce of pain

Drip from my emotionless face

Down into the drain...Into darkness

If only my heart were like my skin

Cleansed when I wish it

My dark desires scrubbed from my mind

If only it were so simple

And yet the drain is like a gaping mouth

Willing to devour all I wash away

Forgiving when I am willing to try

To vanquish myself of all that is vile

My body... A home to hatred

A vessel of parasitic corruption

I wish I could just wash it away...
