Acid blood

A pale blurred echo
Of your joy hits me
Evidence repeating
Of a distant heart

I focus on the sound
And I strip the meaning
As if your blessing
Was not a curse to me

Blade stuck in my flesh
Rusting trough my blood
Shall I struggle to feel
Glad for your smile

Its edges are melting
Liquefied by time
Be glad for you one day
I promise I might.
