Bloody Mary

"the darkest wombs exit the heart,"
she said
i listened to her somber voice
like a ghost
in my blood

the moon was swelling
the sweetest melody
in cricket violins 
and the wind

as she screamed
murder, murder

i laid atoned 
in my own blood
the mirror telling no lies

bloody mary, bloody mary,
bloody mary

  1. Haunting - love that first line "the darkest wombs exit the heart". (Hugs) Indigo
