Tag Archive: blood

There’s a large hole in my life raft

although I’d not fought much against the deep gouge

where my blood flowed swiftly away

along the ever-moving river

So, I am left with starting something new

along with all its dizzying freedoms

while I keep thinking of jumping

into the deepest part of that taunting river

even knowing, I will most surely drown


You choose to stand there

in between the hands of love

and I don’t know why

it only makes yours filthy

with the blood you’ve spilled on them
