The Blood That Flowed

by The Queen of Spades   Aug 21, 2007

I hope she remembers
Her heart was broken
That the cracks still linger
And the red oozing from them
Does not taste sweet

I pray she never forgets
The way the earth shook
How she fell to her knees
And the pain staining her skin
Never really left

I hope she remembers
That looks are deceptive
Kisses are but a pointless action
And the crimson in her mouth
Is the bitter truth

I pray she never forgets
The woman she is
The woman she can be
And never succumbs hopelessly
To the woman she was

I beg her to never forget
I implore myself to remember
The blood that flowed

    I loved the alternating repetition of the 1st two words (I hope & I pray) in each stanza then ending differently with another type of words (I beg). This totally attracts attention of the reader. the flow reveals smooth and unrestricted sequential dripping of thoughts. The most important thing here is the coordination between different stanzas, which made the poem tightly sewed together with experience. You I still can imagine you reciting it in front of the public. It's really full of emotion and sorrow. One of my favorites.
