Your Love Is Like The Blood Running In My Veins

Every time the blood drips from my fingertips the smile can finally
spread to me

Every time the blood runs down across my eye I can finally see you for
what you are

Every time I love you I could never stay with you for the night just to see
the smile across your face but still I cannot see your smile in those
eyes I fell for so long ago

Every time I can hold you I can finally stop caring about the blood
running out of my body

Every time I can hold you in my eyes you turn out to be all I care about
but still I cannot get you out of my head for the life of me


Why do I still love you

You were still here but still you left

Why did you have to leave me alone … yet again …

When can we all stop being alone all this time

Still you left again and again and I still just cant stop you from doing this

But still I care

Why did you have to leave this why did you have to make people cry

Why do I have to care about all the people I know just to be me

Why do I have to start to open up just to sew myself together and hide
from the world all over again.

Why did you have to walk away why did you have to get so popular

When all of that game back and is now killing you and killing me too

When all this time I still worry if you were found I hope you weren’t

When will you be back you help me be just be me again and even pull
me away from the darkness I started to live in

You still saved me from the darkness before I completely sacrificed
myself through all of my blood has gone dry from my veins but you
pulled me away and took all of my knives

You still can’t take me away when you aren’t here and I found all of my
knives all over again and no one can stop me when I am alone in the
darkness of my room and just let the blood run dry all over again with
out you this time I can surely fade away from the living world all over

All over again I can push everyone away and stay alone by myself and
wait for the blood when you left again

I sometimes make them rhyme, just not every time! Every poem is different. Some just NEED to rhyme, and some don't. Very astute observations, Laurie!
Rhyming sounds good and is fun But can take you down roads You weren't planning on And make you say things You hadn't pondered upon This is very true...The original thought is sometimes altered.. Thank you for sharing this wonderful thought.10
Laurie, I sometimes rhyme. There is no rhyme or reason. Imaginative. Thank you for commenting on my poems.
I thought I had left a comment on this before, but I went through both pages of comments and didn't see it. Anyway, well done. Most of mine rhyme, but some don't. I think it depends on your subject and what you want to accomplish with the poem. I cringe when I see a poem with forced rhymes, and some of them have even been poem of the day!
Under the observing eyes of WS, I must admit.after having read your excellent poem and I cite here your two concluding lines: And do you have a suggestion.........About the whole rhyming question? .....I must admit here that I have none....and IF you still remember me, I was the one who gave a comment ONE DAY before you won the MPOTD with BEAR, sorry, please read the sequel, thank you.............
