the rainbow of our dysfunction

the winds of this rainbow
surround me with varied
colors falling to the ground

i didn’t want this to break
like that
nothing beautiful should be
sacrificed to the hands of
our dysfunction

rainbows can be rebuilt
you just need the right
amounts of water and light

what we had will not be
as easy
i don’t know what amounts
of anything will be able
to set us right
