"Blood"

Blood – a gift of life that is passed down each generation
to keep a family lineage upon existence
The sweet nectar that keeps Dracula animated
A gang that suits up in red that battles blue enemies
The adhesive that keeps the distance amongst us all cut short
making us closer then what we refuse to see
Was shed to save the lives
By one who gave us life
….. an existence
The result of a slit wrist
believed to be a way to escape the world
when for them it goes amiss
What a bullet hole vomits
when the surface it resides on belongs to a biped
hit by a foreign object like a comet
The drip-drops that tears drop
When emotions become a tempest
And a heart is filled with emptiness
What a soldier doesn’t mind to spew
For people like me and you
To end the birth of flat lines
To keep life lines
bouncing about like kangaroos
The vital juices of life
That runs in the arteries and veins
That hold the property of life
Till death deactivates their clocks
To activate a door to heaven or hell to live an eternal life
