hope slowly bleeds

by J.J. Campbell

dancing with the
shadows of mercy
as a song of hope
slowly bleeds from
an old stereo

but these oppressive
winds only bring
heat and destruction

they never bring
rain

the fruits of life
are slowly dying
on the vine

helpless, i watch
from behind air
conditioned walls
knowing one day
that will be me

i'm pretty sure they
have already started
building the cross
