scarlet rain

scarlet rain

you stain every perception

that appears before us

soaking us with your ugliness

.

scarlet rain

your taste of salt

swayed our composure

consumed us with your doubts

.

scarlet rain

we backed away from you

but you always linger on the foreshore

allowing your stench to permeate

.

scarlet rain

you have no reason to be here

you are at the wrong place

leave us alone..
