We All Bleed At Some Point.

My heart is bleeding again,

Droplets splash on the ground.

They mingle with teardrops,

Falling with gentle sound.


My heavy heart is losing blood,

The pain was far too great.

So it spills out as flowing blood

Any hope of rescue came too late.


My swollen eyes betray the tale,

Appearance says no tears left to shed,

But if my heart keeps bleeding as it does,

Then tears will join to comfort all l've bled.

My hands begin to tremble,

My body shakes with fear.

As my heavy heart gets lighter,

Losing blood with every tear.

My head's becoming dizzy.

My brain confirms, l'm sad.

Sad to the point of gloominess,

For this time l know it's BAD.


Past experience should bring hope,

But previous damage degenerates

For my state of mind, blood and tears

I can no-one but myself berate.


The damage has been done. --- So sad.

This time my bleeding heart can't win.

Too many tears, too much sanguinary

This may be time for me to simply give in.

I've missed your poetry, Dim. It is always exquisite, even when it is sad. Well done my friend.

Dramatic poem as to overwhelming and heartrending pain. I hope this is fiction and not what you are experiencing right now.

Blessings

O, no! I didn't want your last line - I wanted release, peace, not depression. And via the comments, you didn't, thankfully, 'give in'.

A beautiful and expressive poem, matching the bleeding heart with those falling tears! Loved it!

All great writers/poets have insecurities and are often shunned as quite mad? I have wondered at times of my own sanity, to bleed and let the words gush out when the red is overwhelming is a sign of not weakness but strength, as they say, in time this to will pass. We as human are tested daily, some of us to the brink of disaster. I wish you well my poet, I pray you bounce back, and I am glad to read your work here as well, it's been too long for me, my departure was my choice, yet I return recharged to pen some new work as Saddlerider the original name I used to join the Hubs, my inspiration will always come from Vincent though. Peace and blessings I send to you this day, lift up your spirits and keep writing, your talent is magnificent.

This is a poignant one, Dim, so full of bleeding heart ache and pain. So many feel this way daily but are unable to articulate. You speak for the many tear-filled bleeding hearts. Voted up, awesome, and interesting.
