Bleed Upon the Pages

I stare upon an open page

Of a book across my lap

Covered with those stains of ink

My words of black and blue

-----------------

Ink stains my hands

My tears stain the pages

Memoirs of a broken girl

With a broken smile

---------------

No scars are seen upon my skin

No rivers of crimson red

Yet still the world cuts me

With words and past regrets

--------------

Sometimes I wish I could see

The blood from the scars within

Bleeding through my broken soul

A heart that never mends

--------------

When I feel the pain

From wounds blind to the eye

I turn to the pages

Where my pen

Lets me bleed
