blood & love/

©2021 Michael Raven

you said you
believe in love
but you
believed in blood
& they're not
the same thing

they both pass
through the heart
& may be hard
to tell apart but
one is thunder
the other, lightning

& now there is
a goddamn mess
corpses & death
left in the wake, blunted
daggers & knives w/
a battle no one won

for, you see, my friend
in spite it all,
love doesn't pour like blood
