Your Poems

The poems you never saw
to write them would make me raw
inside
scraped out like a d&c, the womb
to become a tomb
inside

The poems you never read
would take the last drop I bled
dry
siphoned till the veins
collapse, drained
dry

The poems you never knew
could exist only for you
buried
in the bottom of a box
in my soul, locked
buried

  4. Liz, Thanks. It's not a good feeling, but it fit when I wrote the poem. I'm into nature, too, and I really like your blog.
