Blood Ties Between Them

If blood ties between them,
Have left some to feel...
They experience broken vessels.
This can be mended,
With steps of further prevention.
But it has to be admitted,
That an emptiness exists within.
Only then can a healing begin!
If blood ties between them,
Have left some to feel...
They experience broken vessels.
And this sometimes is defended.
With a continued dripping,
Seeping from a strength...
That eventually weakens,
An enlightenment that heightens.
Defeating the intention meant,
To heal all wounds to bond a growth.
Mentioned to be needed but gone unknown.
Withering the bloom of the branch that dies.
If blood ties between,
Is allowed in stubbornness to exist and deny.
Like a trap that satisfies...
The sick desires of those haunted,
By the inflictions of past afflictions done.
And wishing to carry the scars to reminisce,
Forever!

'Someday we will be together! '

That 'someday' like tomorrow...
Is for many a time that has passed!


Dedicated:
To those who believe time is on their side,
without a shred of evidence to confirm...
that time acknowledges hesitation of any kind!
