A Poem by SammMG

Bonds are stronger than you think

In order for blood to flow
Sometimes it has to boil
They say a knife
No matter how glaring
Or even how sharp
Cannot sever a bond
Despite the craters
The drifts in the land
Or even the scarlet scars
We are bound together
The pain we feel
The emerald that covers our sight
The poison on the blade
It's all superficial
Look past threats
Promises of departure
And you'll see
We are one

I totally agree with your notes on this one my dear young and wise friend. There is nothing that will separate us from a bond that has been forged well.
I really liked the metaphors in this piece, especially of the poison on the blade. Unless it slashes us, we will not feel it..

I loved the quick line-breaks and images you conveyed here. The last four lines especially stood out to be... I just adore the choice of words. Thanks for sharing!
