I can wait

I can hold your hands till you bleed

till your soul is absolved

of all the sins and predilections

till you skin is wiped clean

off all the scars

and voice is cleansed

from all the expletives

to get the searing pain

washed off your soul

I can wait

till the blood is wiped off

cleansed and scrubbed off

from every single pore of your wretched skin

we can hope for the love 

we can hope for the light

but the battles are never won

it is an unending fight

I can hold you in my thoughts

till the crimson sun

bleeds in the skies

and the horizon is tainted red

with its scars

I can wait for you till the ashen moon

rubs off the scars of its face and

renders itself pure

I can wait till time finds its wriggling tale and

bites it deep.

I can wait till the memories are sunken too deep

to be recalled

I can wait

till you stop running from your own fears

I can wait.
