The Bitter Taste of Blood

And I smear the sky black,
With the bitter taste of blood.
My vision of this life,
Destroyed by your ugly lies.

You think you are here,
But this precious gift of time,
Allows me to manipulate
The eternity we share together.

Leave me alone to cry,
Cut my body till it bleeds
Shone the light down on me,
Take me where ever it shall lead.

And I ache for your forgiveness,
To let me finally rest,
Resist the urge to scream,
And rip this heart from my chest.

I whisper the words of comfort
To no ears but my own,
Flood my soul with your voice,
It is all i have ever known.

Your tears burn like acid,
Running down my cheek.
I am so very lonely,
Tired, desperate and weak.

I have never known it to be true,
But try so hard to believe,
That you would die for me,
Whisper me these last words:

“I never left you,
I was always here,’
In your heart, your dreams, your mind,
The blood that runs through your soul”

So I cradle your body,
For hours til I wake.
These visions, just a dream,
The words never to pass your lips.

This love reserved just for you,
Destroys me more each day.
Aches when we’re close,
Strangles when we’re far away.

I’m scarred so deeply,
The wounds never to heal.
No longer a path to follow,
If you love me,then baby, just let me feel.
