A Bloody Poem


Bloodied, she stood at the door-step.

Droplets of nascent red slid down

the pink of her lips –

submerging with the rusty pattern of old blood

– now dried and dusty.

Her eyes spoke of disbelief,

rimmed with steady haze of moist tears.

The twinkle, now replaced with

the dark pall of a bloodied pain.

Her cheeks flushed now and then

– alternating between pain and more pain.

With trembling fingers she held out

– the little memento of lost infancy

– her first milk tooth!

  1. Wonderful, Sri Di!! At first I was scared (I nearly faint at the sight of blood) but the ending had me beaming and giggling ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. Wow Sri. I was expecting a different climax and it made a difference at the end. What an amazing climax to the poem. Not much painful though than I had expected. . haha. .but It hurts nonetheless. . Nice one! Have a great weekend. . ๐Ÿ™‚
