blood bleeds black

blood bleeds black upon the page
open wounds that spill my pain
dried crusts of death
of darkened red
leaving behind mournful stains


blood bleeds black within my brain
flowing out through open veins
the thoughts are bled
within my head
an onslaught i must sustain


blood bleeds black inside my mouth
iron, salt and the taste of doubt
upon my tongue
my pain undone
a taste i could do without


blood bleeds black across my heart
flowing free within the dark
the bloodstained breath
within my chest
breathing death on ancient scars


blood bleeds black within my eyes
lifeless tears that cannot hide
they try to blend
upon my skin
leaving mournful stains behind

I have an open wound for sucking in Gothic darkness, and this one got sucked into my soul: "blood bleeds black within my eyes lifeless tears that cannot hide they try to blend upon my skin leaving mournful stains behind" — the visual here is a beautiful mess of sadness and defeat. Bravo!!

Dano - Very well written! Deep and Dark. The flow and imagey are both superb and the pain is conveyed so well. Great job! :) Ken

excellent piece... the images of darkness splashed with blood are so powerful... the torment of thoughts is very apparent... write on!

This is truly incredible... I love the structure and rhythm. Great job ♥

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
