Let Me Bleed

You are the salt in wounds I thought
Were long since turned to scars,
A life of lies, a sterile pain,
A night without its stars

And moon, a frigid June;
Things that were and are not real-
A whirlwind in my fucking head
That’s edged in jagged steel.

Can’t you leave me the fuck alone?
Can’t you just let me bleed?
I’m already beaten, already broken;
What fucking more do you need?

So here you stand, a constant reminder
Of all you put me through-
The way that you tricked me, and all the
While I was just his stand-in for you.

And you sit there, and blithely you
Have to remind me
Of the ones who were here before you?

Can’t you leave me the fuck alone?
Can’t you just let me bleed?
I’m already beaten, already broken;
What fucking more do you need?

You’ve already beaten me, broken
And cheated me; just go, just
Let me fucking bleed.

Let Me Bleed
