Ophelia

ophelia

 

Where Ophelia walks

flowers bloom

dripping crimson tears

that stain the bottoms of her feet,

 

and where Ophelia lies

there the water salts the earth

so green grass and tall trees

lay themselves down to sleep.

 

Where Ophelia rests

there does Gertrude sit

in hopes to lose her demons in penance

as the grey clouds weep.
