Random Poem:

Blood Loss

you stabbed me in the back
and now i'm suffering from blood loss
you kicked my feet from underneath me
and now i'm on my knees
you beat me
you hate me
you'll do anything
to push me down
i'm forsaken
yet taken
and get imprisoned by your
what can I do to make you leave
if you left i wouldn't grieve
i'd thank my god
that you let me free
i loved you
and you abused that love
i trusted you
and you stabbed me in the heart
and now i'm suffering from blood loss
i need a bandage to cover my heart
put pressure against the wound
stop the bleeding
please take a heeding
to my immeasurable bleeding
and without a place to go
i fall back and won't let you know
i've grown accustomed to your hell
that i might as well
be locked in your cell forever
i'm suffering from blood loss
everything's gone hazy
dark and grim and lazy
everything's shady
so let me free
quit stabbing me
let me go
and no one will ever know
