The Ground That Holds A Million Tears

Pieces of a memory
way down here
on the ground below
that holds a million tears

Shattered heart and soul
mended together still
but it takes a toll
holding together
with a pill
Managing to scrape
at the bottom of the barrel
even better standards still
cherry picking, like a hunt

Even though there are the runts
being pushed around
or, being pushed down
I don't know anymore

It's a game; to keep score
surviving with the petals
when problems are ignored
and pacified to settle

Boiling like a kettle
of secrets underneath
though hidden in a sheath
so hidden in a sheath..
