Words Within

By: B.A. Caravaca

Bone and blade clash
Steel and calcium collide
Pierced flesh, dismantled hide
Bloody eyes and rivers they cry

Sharp words wield pain
Engraved with a name
A double-edged flame
A beast that cannot be tamed

Scorching wounds, wonderful bruise
Smiles are absent in this terrible ruse
Red rivers dry to all shades of blues
Self inflicted with no one to amuse

We’re all savage in this safari
Truth bearing lips drip with sorries
To hear it instead can be quite gnarly
To do both at once is plain hari-kari
