Blood & Tears

by Wing Tang Wong

I taste salt,
In your blood,
I think, they are tears.

Please, I don't know
But I care,
For you

In this darkness
I can only reach for
And feel.

Your soft skin
Your silken hair
Your wet cheeks

I pull you close
Hold you tight
In my arms

Please, I don't know
But I feel
Your Pain

Embracing you
I can feel your trembling
And your tears

Falling down you cheek
Falling upon my arm
Sad wetness

I lean closer
Close my eyes
And bite

Please, I know
So I drink
Your Pain

I taste blood
Upon my lips
I know there are tears,

Yours and mine.
