Blood Instead of Ink

Blood Instead of Ink

He didn't realized how much pain was inflicted
When he wrote the title it was slightly restricted
What he had written in blood, he could not erase
But all he could think of was her conniving face

First verse told a story of love's once upon a time
When all he cared about was the girl on his mind
It was the schoolboy crush he never grew out of
Maturing into something he thought could be love

The second verse consisted of some romantic events
Which included his memorable Birthday presents
Long walks on the beach and dinner by candlelight
Stargazing in an open field on a late summer night

The next verse was the collapse of his relationship
Where things were going wrong and he let them slip
For some reason she didn't feel the same way anymore
And that's where she left him and walked out the door

In the fourth verse tears were pouring from his eyes
Streaming down his face onto the paper as he cries
But those tears turned into angry words as he wrote
His impaired thoughts were wishing to slit her throat

Verse after verse malicious words begin to appear
Hastily creating torturous scenes as if he didn't care
The words bled onto the paper but no pen was found
Hands working frantically and the pen on the ground

Finally he wrote the last verse with utmost perfection
His poem had taken a twist but he liked the direction
It paralleled his emotions and also made him think
Next time he writes he will use blood instead of ink

    Bravo. This poem is a work of art, I must say. I noticed how easy it was to read, which is wonderful. Also, the rhyming seemed so natural, as if you weren't even trying.

    I love how you wrote a poem about writing a poem. Very original. And how you went through all the stages and all of these feelings.

    Like I said. Bravo.
