Blood In My Vein

Another week, another challenge. I am totally enjoying this contest for NaPoWriMo, hosted by very generous John Reyes. You all are very welcome to join in on the fun!

For this week, I present you my lyrical attempt inspired by Memories by Maroon 5. Hopefully, you will enjoy the song, at least 😉


I close my eyes again

Wandering into my mind palace in vain

Seek out your intoxicating scent

Without my mind’s consent

Heart stops at the familiar turn

Mind warns me of severe burns

Yet I stand in front of that door

Where I shouldn’t be, no more

Ignoring every chill in my bone

Legs move with a mind of their own

I step inside with all my might

The memories hit me, a high tide

Throbbing of my festering wounds

The only connection I’ve with you 

I drown happily and cherish the pain

Not blood, now your memories flow in my vein

  1. This is the fitting blog for anyone who desires to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost onerous to argue with you (not that I truly would need匟aHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

          1. आपकी बात सिर्फ आप ही रख सकते हो शब्दों की पुनरावृत्ति से इसका कोई मतलब नहीं। आशीर्वाद, बधाई और बड़ाई के लिए शब्द नहीं देखे जाते उसके लिये भाव महत्वपूर्ण होते है। आपकी टिप्पणी प्राप्त होती तो मैं और भी हर्षित होता फिर भी ऐसे शब्दों के लिए मैं आपका आभारी हूँ। 🙏🙏🙏

    1. Thank you!! These kind words mean a lot coming from an amazing poet herself.
      I also love Maroon 5, haven’t seen them perform live but I bet Adam Levine look even better in person 😉
