When I Stopped Falling

Broken bones, scared skin, clotted

blood
My body is damp and left in the mud
The rain keeps pouring down
All the commotion is an uproar of

sound
Still breathing here
Please don't shed a tear
Muscles flex joints crack
who would want this abomination back
Arms lift my face from the ground
Thank God I wasn't found
Shaking as I see my reflection in the
water
My face I want to alter
I turn see the sky
And I thank it for washing me of all
the filth
I embrace the unveiled sun's warmth
veins open to bring back my body heat
Leaning forward to see where I landed
I crashed into an oasis
Left in a never ending stasis
But its better then hell
