"Blood"

You feel it burning
In those chambers
Beating close together
Your fiery blood
Pours through your veins
And cleanses your bones
Dripping off the sharp white ends

Blood pouring scarlet for your sin
And marring truth's chaste, white surface
Blood cupped in your palms
And released
Plunging into the deep abyss
Where love and hate lie together
Blood falling until it's
Sky-high in the fury of its sacrifice

Red and white
Flying side-by-side on a flag
With blue to quench the flame
Blood spilt in anger
Splattered on your banner of pride
Wasted
To melt the clean, snowy landscape

Pain for peace
The red vitality of life
Awaits your judgement
As it covers your hands

------------------
"You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice..."

Very good BabyGrace. I liked the image of the flag.

that's one of my favourite poems of yours

Red and white
Flying side-by-side on a flag
With blue to quench the flame
Blood spilt in anger
Splattered on your banner of pride
Wasted
To melt the clean, snowy landscape


this poem is not merely good, it's great

Wow...
Savage and beautiful.

(Our biol. classes were boring too, but it looks like you got more out of it than I did!)

Thank you to both of you
It's not that good Wanderer *blushes*
You want to know where I started it?? It's kinda funny...we were talking about the circulatory system in Bio and my teacher is VERY boring...so I started thinking instead about the significance of blood and what it is used for...much more worthwhile, if you ask me!!
