Bloody words
escape my lips,
fly like birds
that fall and slip,
look absurd
but slowly trip
visions blurred,
until they flip.

Bled out sounds
possessed my tongue,
left my mouth,
fled from my lungs,
tilted ground,
vibrations rung,
sadness found
where all begun.

Bleeding tunes
ring in my ears,
my head swoons
expunging fears,
hope balloons
releasing tears,
heart cocoons
yet, feels so clear.

Blood filled songs,
finally healed,
curing wrongs,
dropping the shield,
thoughts prolonged
but now revealed,
truth belongs
to what feels real.

  4. I just read your poem. I love how your words painted such a raw picture and I felt the emotion behind it or the feeling associated with it. It was like an art piece to me. I write poems too. I would love for you to check it out please. I think it is great to find other writers because there is an understanding of why we share our works our hearts through the art of words.
