The Silver Lining

The silver lining that aches

It bleeds violet

In quiet

We are left wandering

With our souls of velvet

And ash

It’s like a shadow

Cascading upon damaged walls

Distorted in bloody vision

Glossy with time

The heater clicks

An unexpected rhythm

We are never to know

Just what lies in the fields

So gently whispering

In silence

Our breath lingers

Coffee stained and chocolate warm

Death rises from the carpet

A voodoo charm

Opened in chants

Just to make the heart spasm

From the silver lining

Oh, how it aches.
