jaded white

These walls will never be white again
I think
As I scrub the stains
Soap suds mingle with howled tears
Gasped fears 

A whisper 

They will never be white again
But I will dye them scarlet 

Til they drip with the pain of love 
White no longer
Bloodied forever

Stricken hearts lying on the countertop
Scuffed, stolen
Jagged, jaded

Broken but beating 

And this home will never be white again
No waxing, wielding, or wanting can cure it 

Again, that voice 

I'll dye it scarlet
Til it reeks of redemption

I don't know if I dare to believe it
