he took her heart
played with it
like words

laid her down 
on blank sheets
until she bled
like a pen
inking thoughts

she opened
like a poet's mind
each kiss
a new poem born
of deceit

she lies
around the edges
a wrinkle of time
in his book of games

bleeding from scars
of his hands
and hers alike
life becomes blank verse
she is heard

    Wow, a very dark poem, in the manner I like. The title is what caught me, being unpublished, well for poetry, at this point myself. There is some complexity here, and still wondering if I get all the pieces, Wonderful write and thanks for your comment too. I will look at this some more.

    Hi Sandra, how are you... wow... somehow the short title brought many thoughts to mind.. after reading the poem, I am proud of the title. Hopefully she really does not feel like this... men are like that, acting as if we don't exist when all is said and played... love the poem.. Linda

    Painful, harsh, yet powerful. One hell of an ending. You're quite the writer. Excellent job!
