White Scars

White Scars

written by: William Wright, Jr.



A black veil falls and lingers
Filling the haunted silence
With joyous cries
Rising out of the grave

The white scars of lost years
Bleed new in these shadows
Sprawled across the earth
Blotting out the true stars

I wear the vicious words of yesterday
As a scalding brand
Seared forever in my skin

As the steeple tolls
For the long march home
Many moments too late
When the pale roses fall
