voodoo Allison Gliesman You put a stake in my heart and claimed it for your own. But once the arteries ran dry And all of my blood had stained the floor, You ripped out that hollow vessel And threw it in a drawer next to All the other hearts with holes like mine. You didnâ€™t mean to hurt them too, But now your room is a bloodied mess, And you canâ€™t remember if the blood is hers or mine or yours. Allison Gliesman lives and writes in Kansas.
