"red markings" december 3, 2010

today i scrubbed my wrist
to get rid of your name
i cried like i witnessed death
as you dripped down the drain
& my mom said that you’re
the one who crippled me
from rebellious blows i took
to every lie that i believed
but when i think of you
i leave out the worst parts
& when you remember me
notice i never broke your heart
unlike those so called girls
that you make your own
did they ever stop to feel
you’re home sweet home
a nostalgic sense of pure familiarity!
they’d be better off homeless
with their heart trampled on the street!
while begging for a change to
their sad dismembered life
wondering where comfort went
when you left them behind
& with their highest pitch
“God make it GO AWAY!”
i’d jump in front of this bus
if you relieve me of my pain
& i relive this seeing red
markings from your name
