Blood Trail

Leaving the place you’re going to,

my ultimate regret

a thorny road of promised dreams

I fled but can’t forget


Leaving the place that claims my heart,

still beating—buried deep

your pathway marked with blood I shed

whose wound this distance weeps


(The New Room: November, 2021)
