Blood Stains

Copper-like
Blood stains stain my small notebook
Flippin’ sick!
 
Blood stains
Drain on my piece of paper
Disturbing…
 
Dried-up blood
Spew out from my open wounds
Bloody mess!

    For me, This is excellent metaphor for how one writes from the such depth. I can almost see the blood of the writer in the ink. Great creativity

    Hey, David. I like how you refer to blood as copper-like, I see it both for the reddish quality that copper and rust have, and also the metallic taste of blood.

    Quite thought provoking-- I have journals that look like that. Well written
