Poem -



Midnight settles in your eyes,
with the scent of familial pain, 
at the back of my own hand
you stay; healing the face 
of my mind in every tomorrow. 
Selfish my fate to use 
the easiest answer, palatially 
placed in the interlink of your
fingers, writing poetry in
my breath, a piano.
To grasp the man that loves
unconditionally like true a
Shakespearian major,
discarding tuned keys unto
the blood of another,
upon a mid-summer
night's dream,
I can't shake
the stain of red from my hands,
the stain of red from my hands,
the blood, the blood,
your blood on my hands.

Amazingly well crafted poetic prose here my friend...... the Shakespearean reference works perfectly here with the torturous type memories where regret seems to control the narrative of a life filled with it!!...... The blood imagery hauntingly reminding and repetitively unwelcome in the back story of a familial relationship gone awry!!....... fantastic imagery delivered here!!........ALL STARS & PINNED!!...... Bravo!......T xo. : )
