A poem expressing sorrow for painful relationships.

I open my mouth and poison drips out,
Burning holes in your flesh where I touch you.
An embrace suffocates, a kiss draws blood,
And I ache for failing to make it all better.
I close my eyes and see you well and whole
Just like you were before I tried to love you.
But my open eyes see blood dripping down your skin
From the way your heart bled when you gave it to me.
I take you in through streaming eyes
And hold you fiercely in my heart.
My hands are ready to let go
If that will heal your infected wounds,
But my soul is still wrapped up in thoughts of you
And clings more fiercely through the storms
To the love of you that caused this mess
And the God I pray will fix it.

There is intensity and passion in your words... Nice writing.
Reviewed by Michelle Mead 3/31/2008
Wow, very intense, your heart is bared and raw here, good work.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 3/28/2008
How you agonize over past events, yet with the knowledge that sometimes letting go is the better way to be, nicely said...

Be always safe,
