Tears of Blood Red

Tear
Red line drawn
Shaking, tremble
Passion
Sorrow

Paine
Crimson
Reduction Pulsing
Memories hurt
These tears are red

Silent breathing
Stickiness
Scarlet syrup
Sharp blade tight
Sadness overwhelmed

The face distraught
Distorts
A lonely night
In abject fear
Alone

The waves burdening
Sinking
I’m tired
Weary
Frustrated

I don’t know any other way
These tears flow steadily
The world is full of strangers
& the brain is a failure
Starved of success

Meaning devoid
These droplets of rich red blood
Trickle on white skin in contrast
Life is ebbing
Fading

The roses you took
& faces which steal
Achievements empty
change too difficult.
Eyes close & I’m drifting

~ full of rage & full of pain. A horrible night.

  1. you strange, strange, strange people of the world!!! 😛 🙂 thankfully the days have moved on, the sun’s out & it’s not such a heavy moment to write! thank you for liking this so much & making it a fav! possibly a bit weird for such a poem to be liked. but it’s nice that something good comes out of darkness. cheers you lovely crazy friends & readers! 🙂 x 25.5.15 – now it’s joint second. does pain create a better poem than joy?
