“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


There's a stain
Next to where the ink pen was dropped

Dripping

Her blood,
Dripping

The notes she left behind ran with her tears
And her anger

The pen might as well have been the
Weapon that opened
The floodgates
Of her
Veins

Because ink convinced her that her sorrows
Were beautiful

And death a satisfying end for a poet
Like her,

Tragic just like the heroines'
Of ages

And the ink stain resembled her romanticized
Broken heart

But her blood came from
The real
Thing.
