Lacerations and Need

Rip the blue veins past help

Let my blood fill the tub

Dye my hair red with it

Open my mouth for a final breath

And let the blood fall in


Let the red soak my eyes

Drown me in your hate

Break my bones and tear my skin

Make me scream in silent bubbles

I'll let the blood fall in


Tear my tendons, pink not red

Shred my wrists with rusted blades

Take my only words away

No longer will I write

I want the blood to fall in
