Hurt me again

Hurt me again,
and feel the gentle warmth
of my crimson blood
steadily flowing the trace
of such a perfect face.

Hurt me again,
thy wounds shall never heal,
for they cut deep into my skin,
and bleed my soul out.

Oh, hurt me no more love,
and forget what was done,
for we’ll know it is time,
when crying upon two hazy smiles
we face our last sunset,
and vanish into the bright light.

Hurt me no more,
forget me and murder my memory,
for I’d rather forsake your gentle touch,
than have blood for tears.

Blackprint Poetry's recommendation
Today's recommendation goes to the blog My Beautiful Emotion and its even more beautiful author Kayleigh Jane, aged 17! Kayleigh's work truly amazes me: the choice of words, the themes in her poems... just incredible. Please visit her blog, it will be worth it:

See you next week!

To envision an eternal sense of shadowed wanderlust for a love that drifts within the ghost of a tragic muse that beckons a haunting pleasure. The passionate imagery bleeds an arcane exposure to the darkness of an artistic emotion. Beautifully scribed, your words draw the reader to another place and time.

This is such a bold poem, with even bolder words. You have a great way of presenting your images with a fierce emotion.

This poem strikes deep. It is indeed a literary sword-swipe against the heart and soul. My favorite image is "bleed my soul out."
