i want to bleed
let the ruby stream flow
from self inflicted wounds lost
rush forth, spilling
pulsing screams found
velvet waves overflowing proper boundaries

i want to bleed
washing out decaying debris
sweeping rotting carcasses
foul organic rot surged from veins
of now remembered errors
move on, ever away to another place

i want to bleed
until the last drop fall silently
on sun baked stones
tears of fault upon a parched beds
lingering dust, rolling

lifeless shadows reaching
to passers by
who walk
mindless of the flood that once flowed
all the while
knowing they too want to bleed
