503 – Slipping

Green skies
Melting into silence.

Pink rain
Washing sins away.

Red poison
Pouring from cold fingers.

White blood
Dancing on the ceiling.

Golden bourbon
Running thru ghost veins.

Grey metal
Sticking from dead ribs.

Purple dents
Where fists banged the wall.

Yellow phlegm
Coughed by spent illusions.

Black sun
Shining on fresh ashes.

Grey wind
Blowing me away.

Hold me tight
One more day.

Hold me tight.

Please don’t let go.
