By Blood

Our souls are entangled forever,

by blood,
by skin,
by scars,
by whispers,
by secrets,
by pain,
by tears
by promises,

by love. . .

His lips, stained with my essence.

He trickles into my bones,

filling my chest so full

that there is no space

between skin and meet.

Memories like,

bullet holes with no exit wounds

Explode out of my eyes in silence.

Don’t forget me please.

Remember why we love.

My heartbeat beat beat beat

sits heavy in my throat.

The darkness would rather I

swallow razorblades,

I continue to hold my wounds

together with the thread of hope and time.

I refuse to let rot set in.
