Blood stain

I had not written anything off late, save reading other blogs and commenting. Been a lifetime since I visited the realm of writing, the Writers Lounge. No excuses for the fault lies with me. I am not completely back to blogosphere yet.

I stare at your 
crimson blood still 
staining my 
guilty palm.
I regret and repent
yet remain in a
ghastly calm.

In a moment or two
I shall wash you
off my hand.
You will fade away
leaving behind  the
blood strand.

I remember you
never had issues
with me
yet I crushed, pounded
and eventually
killed you, Mehendi.

Guess what you wont believe theres an amazing track called "Hang On" by a grunge band called Seether. check its lyrics and you will be surprised how amazingly this poem seems like a carry forward of this track.

And as usual great work ! Loved the flow. Hibernation from blogosphere is injurious to health. :)

you have a good way with words.... but i think it's a pity that you never handle hard and painful topics like love, death, pain etc....

remember pain is poetry.

this poem reminded me of shakespeare's creation - Lady Macbeth. she washes her hand in the second half of the play just to get outta the guilt of killing king Duncan.. Mehandi is not a guilt!:-)
