torn-out-side in

J J 

Soon past moving on,
This river of scarlet pain.
Merely a portion left unspent,
the only trace of him undrained.
Passionless about his ways,
unseen his careless content.
Blind from woe,
starving on the velvet bent.
Bleeding out his worth,
his character exposed.
Thrown out to the wolves,
bitten and unopposed.
Curdled his bloody wrasp,
the crimson fog of his breath.
Restless whispers,
ungraceful dance of death.

By the way the reason I right so much on death is cause I’ve experienced it in more than one way …so I write to get it out. I have a quote of mine I tend to fend" Manipulation is a face without a mouth, eyes without lids, ears without drums, and a brain without a mind. " please be kind and enjoy. Be mindful Not Malleable. more…
