A/N: It's about a person who just....went homicidal, and stabbed her Beloved. I have NO idea WHY she did, but she did. FORGIVE HER!



Puddle of Blood



Blood pools around my feet.

The candle's flare holds strong.

A speck of light in Everdark.

What have I done wrong?



I gape at the red stain on my hands.

Lightening cracks through the black.

The knife slips through my slick fingers.

I just stabbed my belov'd in the back...



My pulse pounds through my head

As I run out into the night.

Though the rain washes blood from my person

I've no questions 'bout my plight.



I stare at the ring on my finger.

A silver sort of swirl.

And wonder what He did

To deserve this sort of girl...



He did nothing wrong.

His heart was kind and pure.

Maybe that was what it was.

Still, I'm damned forever.



I stand frozen in the street.

Forever stilled, and soaked.

Why must Joy deny me,

Forever in Darkness cloaked.



He did nothing wrong.

His heart was kind and pure.

Maybe that was what it was.

Still, I'm damned forever.



I stand frozen in the street.

Forever stilled, and soaked.

Why must Joy deny me,

Forever in Darkness cloaked.



The rain just pours down harder.

My feet are caked in mud.

The rain gives me no answers.

Just a puddle of blood.
