Poetry and personal blog – Spilling my guts to strangers


it centers around my jugular vein
and the blood that runs through that space
and that which is closer to me than it
and knows my heart better than i
it involves those who live in my heart
and for whom my blood is everything
for whom my blood is not enough
my sustainers intercessors visionaries
redeemers of the unconditional
in perpetuity


NaPoWriMo Day 30.

I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to all who have visited here this month, and all who have “liked,” shared, and commented. It has meant a lot to me. A special thanks to the poets on this list who also participated in NaPoWriMo for their inspirational work, encouragement, and support.

    We can never get close enough to those that our world is centered around. It always seems we need more .. we need to get even closer…. or we are over taken by someone being so close, it feels like they are sucking the life of us, draining us bloodless like a hungry vampire.

    Another great poem !!

    I am stopping by via our group Blognostics 2.0.
