Much Blood Flows
from old re-opened wounds
A tear in the seams
that should hold you together
gushes with things
you'd rather not remember

you find yourself
searching in the dark
for a needle and thread
to sew up the jagged edges
of the past you'd rather forget
if only you didn't have
this constant flow of reminders

Red is the color of
Love Rage and War
but you know it's something more
it is the color of a past long gone
a past that won't let you move on

it is the cold wet stickyness
that surrounds you
not allowing you to budge
forever holding the grudge
forever reminding you
the consequences of loving
too much.

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind

(William Wordsworth)
