Bound by Blood

Sangued Heart 1
Bound by blood
Vessels on the same course
Intertwined ampersands
Special delivery arteries
You and I
Valves of the same organ
Branches of the same
life-sustaining tree
Pump and release
Pump to release
Together our neurons form a map
of a long-forgotten city.
Bound by a blood pact
            Promises spoken
                 We can never take back
Leading footsteps, strokes,
                        the necessary attacks
                                 echo past beatings.
I found a pathway to
the heart of your being.
        When lost,
the passage there,
        once memorized,
                 needs no repeating.
