Standing on Burning Ground

Long after the last tear has fallen,
I watch as you stroll away
and all I can think

"This is gonna kill. This is gonna break me down."

This is the kind of sin that burns the ground.
The sun is gonna fall and crush me dead.
End this now,

Stop my heart.
God, take me out.

End this now,

I love the beginning, "I watch as you stroll away." That caught my attention and your word choice was really intersting. Nice to see you back on the poetry.

And I love the way it ends... more beautiful still is the simplicity with which you illustrate this saddest of wishes that knows no fulfilment...

air and water my friend... that is how it is...that is how your work always is...
