I Bleed Words Sometimes


She let him run his fingers through her hair.

Sometimes she let him tear them from their roots.

She’d let him sing poems of care,

Sometimes let him spill venom and be rude.

She was his slave.

Sometimes his muse.


To her, he will always be, just another man.

Poet and his muse
