    Faithful emotion

    Blo<_>od pools <br> Gazing at my bloody hands and digging my toes into the bloo<_>dy sand. His scent still dragged in with the fans. Swirling in pools of hope and fate. I gazed at your eyes so full of hate. I wish i could be different, but instead i'm left to di<_>e, in my pools of bloo<_>d that were left to dry.

    As it was and is a gift, I just inspected the book not read it . The book seemed nice but these poems are not of my taste, therefore any further statement would be out of place
