Day 30 #minimalistpoem #napowrimo

Blood only shifts its tide
murmuring from this shore to another,
passing each stone in the way

Each stone, each,
a stone is all that stays,
cold witness to unspeakable things

Blood only shifts its tide
Women in my room have
more sorrow than breath.

  1. I feel like I’m missing something (this is on me here, not the writing) and it’s driving me a bit bonkers during the early morning here, lol. I really enjoyed the reading of your piece though – sincerely. Felt very melancholy, I wish I knew the reason why the sadness – but my critical thinker box is rusty at 6am, :-). Thanks for writing!
