kill me slowly

I open my heart to you.

Pour out all the pain inside,

I kept in store.

Wash away all the blood from my hands.

sit myself down in a corner and rust.

Turn myself into nothing more than dust.

Cut open my heart and pour these words across the world.

Trying to make myself worth remembering.

This time I got so close.

Now I'm back to bleeding.

Drowning in sorrow.

Hold your breath for years.

Bite your tongue don't speak those words.

Hold on tightly never let go.

Keep a heart full of joy,

But life does not work that way.

Its something commercials like to say.

I will wait for life to kill me off.

Laying here cutting myself open bleeding all over the floor.

Suffering and watching it spread.

She cries her tears and turns away.

I wish I had something better to say to comfort her.

Finish me off quickly I cant take it anymore!

Come take me away.

I promise I'll come up with something better to say.

I'll count my days as you kill me slowly.

Chrissie, this is dark and edgy. The images are powerful and unsettle me somewhat. I feel in danger of taking some things in this almost too literally. The sense of someone feeling trapped and hopeless resonates all too strongly here.

Heavy with deep noir moments of what seem like almost nightmare-ish moments. They could be vignettes from a horror movie. It's like a wounded soul laying itself bare here, for all to see. There is a lot of pain, and lots of love in here looking for an answer or an echo to respond. Dark and dripping in scarlet raw hot emotion. The heat of the emotion tells how real it is. Powerful words, Chrissie. So moving and awesome. Rating you up, and looking forward to reading more from you. Take care.
