Crimson Tears

By Pelequin

dripping from red little mouths ...
all screaming out your pain...
i find you on the floor...
a mess of cuts again...

 

i take you in my arms and hold you close..
your blood sharing its mark upon me...
tears flow down your cheeks ..
and in my ear you whisper "im sorry"

 

your body convulses with sobs of grief...
the pain begins to grow ...
arms throbbing with the marks you hate...
yet seek so hard to gain...
symbols of pain for you to show...
but to you a mark of shame...

 

i say in soft and gentle tones...
as i take the blades from you ...
that everything will be alright...
that ill be here to hold you in my arms...
to see you through the night...
then when you look into my eyes...
you know it to be true..

 

ill always be here for you

    This is one of the few poems that nearly made me cry! It reminds me of when somebody cared that much about me. This is a really powerful piece, and I hope to read more from you soon.

    what an awesome poem. it does sound so real...like youve been there. i used to cut and to have someones arms to fall into without judgement would have been nice. i like how you took a horrible time in someones life and made it to just be ok and accepting. you got heart pelequin! awesome!

    That's so beautiful. Many who self-harm don't have anyone to be there and love them. That's really sad and sweet, I almost started crying. Thanks for sharing!
