Tears of Blood Red

Red line drawn
Shaking, tremble

Reduction Pulsing
Memories hurt
These tears are red

Silent breathing
Scarlet syrup
Sharp blade tight
Sadness overwhelmed

The face distraught
A lonely night
In abject fear

The waves burdening
I’m tired

I don’t know any other way
These tears flow steadily
The world is full of strangers
& the brain is a failure
Starved of success

Meaning devoid
These droplets of rich red blood
Trickle on white skin in contrast
Life is ebbing

The roses you took
& faces which steal
Achievements empty
change too difficult.
Eyes close & I’m drifting

~ full of rage & full of pain. A horrible night.
