Come Drink Long Stem Blood Red Roses - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

come drink long stem blood red roses
you thirst I slit my veins so that you may drink
my life blood soul pour my soul dark red

red blood upon your Stradivarius violin

fine instrument varnish layer coats
thin fine vanish layer twenty thirty times
rose stem thorns pierce skin release

passion blood drips wind time my days
are roses chocolate wine smell eat drink
passion time blood is giving life to life

within blood given is music my soul

blood is my soul come play my strings
we give our blood lives away dripping pulses
strings stretched twisted tuned flex flames

    strange I wrote this poem, had written a similar piece once before a few years ago, but after writing this one, found a song that hauntingly tied in with the original. What are the chances? View Bestamvsofalltime ? Pandora AMV (Report) Reply
