I Bleed for This

Updated on March 19, 2017

You call me selfish,
But I bleed for you.
I bleed for you.

I bleed for the energy that as your daughter you say we drain from you.
I bleed for the sleep you miss over us,
I bleed for your sorrow.
I bleed for you.

I bleed for him.
He called me hypocritical,
But I bleed for him.

I bleed for the way he can't find the words to tell me how he feels.
I bleed for his broken home,
I bleed for the way that he is lost.
I bleed for him.

I bleed for her,
My best friend who suffers.
God I bleed for her.

I bleed for the beatings she takes,
I bleed for her pain and her loneliness,
I bleed for her bruises and her late night thoughts.
My god I bleed for her.

And I bleed for me.

I bleed for my sleeplessness nights and self hate.
I bleed for the way that I could have saved them.
And for the the way that I don't understand what's holding me back.
I bleed for that.

So for now, I write for them.
I write for them, to articulate the things they cannot say themselves.
