blues & blood

00370v

like the blues
you get inside me
under my skin

you pull the veins around my heart

you touch muscle behind my eyes
and tear at the synapses that connect me
to you

you prod my thoughts
about love
and life
about where i am

you push all i believe
to the outside
and allow me to examine
to judge
to decide

and i do decide

not you

the blues belong to everyone
