Wet Paper

The truth soaked through
your scroll of unnecessary facts,
You placed the drenched parchment on a metal grate
and hope for the sentences to dry attached.

I’m going to be honest,
she doesn’t care about the things you write.
Ink will bleed through your paper
and change the words you tried to unite.

That’s the thing about water,
she mainly comes in peace -
But if try to stop her,
she’s a force you cannot beat.
