Let Me Bleed

By HeadpatSlut

Let Me Bleed

Trapped alone, nobody near-
And not one soul to tell-
Although I cry, you can not hear-
I have no lie to sell.

You're far away, and so I'm glad-
Please do not return-
Although this story might seem sad-
I am content to burn.

I ask for nothing, not for help-
Nor aid, nor mortal kindness-
Let me die a beaten whelp-
For me, show only blindness.

I know I've done you wrong again-
I don't deserve your loving-
So soon I'm dead, wait until then-
Away from me, keep shoving.

My life is bleak and heart is black-
In ruin, broke, and shattered-
Forget me, please do not turn back-
Leave me briused and battered.

The only way to keep my pride-
Is not the path I've taken-
I'm sorry for the times I lied-
Please, let me be forsaken.

Go away, forget my name-
My final words, do heed-
Let me fade, and die in shame-
Have mercy, let me bleed.

    well, that too, but this is more like saying "Look, I know I've fucked up, and I've put you through Hell, I have no pride left, but it you even think of coming back you're hurting both of us, so get out and stay away, let me die alone, like I know I deserve to, give me this one last bit of mercy that I know I don't deserve, let me die, and let me Bleed.

    Thank you for these words. We all feel alone and deserving of pain from time to time... in these moments we share so that we may be lifted out together... or maybe so that we can remain where we think we deserve to be... I lean towards the latter, but that's just me. Fantastic write.

  • A former member wrote: Ah, I hate the feeling of being trapped. This was really a great write. Well done. =)

    Nicely structured piece here. To be content with your vision of your fate while others try to say it should be otherwise. An interesting read, thanks for sharing and welcome to dark poetry.
