After all is forgotten

Although I have already

Fallen apart

My body still aches

I find myself again

Swimming in the shallows

My aliferous hours escaping

In this shadowed place

The tangled pathways in my soul

Filled with fragrant roses

And sweet magnolias

Freely blooming in the dark

Lingering memories

Open the deepest wounds

And in my heart

The rain still falls
