The poem(s) are below...



My body cries
crimson tears.
I wasn't strong enough
to fight my fears.
As the wounds
continue to bleed
the pain in my heart
begins to feed.
Now as the pain
begins to end
with my remaining strength
I crawl into bed.
As my heart slows
I feel at peace.
My breathing stops
forgive me, please.

    Good afternoon Myrna. The weekend and half this week are gone and this is the first I have had a chance to read. Had so much drama in my life. Really feeling good reading poetry today. Glad yours was among them. Love, Carol
