Bleeding Heart

poetry bathetic
oft ridiculed
yet handy ...

what else
drains veins 
pulsing with
lost heart's heat
so effectively?

when left loveless,
quatrained blood-letting,
the best.

if in doubt
put away that knife,
tug out your pen
spill it all out.

even Ginsberg's
ghost dare not
lovelorn words
dripping in blood

inspired this one )

OsoTbear is an accomplished, prize winning artist and sculptor who has appeared on my pages before. His use of wings and hearts in his work especially fascinates me.
