Tag Archives: Knees


Feeling the burn I’ve almost reached the wall
Ashes culminating, cushioning my fall
Physical burning now attacks my feelings
So much for now, they have me on my knees praying

The ashes slip beneath my blistered knees
Efforts to reach the wall, can’t be done with ease
Suddenly the film’s slapping the take up reel
Mocking my hopelessness that I can’t conceal

Enjoy the pain free life you have
Here’s hoping you never need salve
To rub away the aches free
Especially both of your knees
