Window Stains

Window Stains
by David C. Price

Darkness within envelops,
concealing private pain.
Lost virtue and youth,
entering eternal inferno.
Bruised knees and salty tears
offering no reprieve.
Hard seating for a soul
seeking salvation.

A corner candle flickers,
lifting light until consumed
By yellows, blues, and reds
descending from above.
Panes of expiation
restoring strength and hope
Morning’s star rescues me.
One stain shattering another.
