Stay

A lock of hair,

A gleaming ruby of life,

A salty pearl of sadness,

Your hand,

My hand,

Void mind,

Hollowed soul,

Vacant body,

Vacant life,

Take this knife,

Look into my eyes,

Glistening with…

Hope?

Despair?

Throw it all away,

My arms,

I will embrace you,

Protect you,

From the demons,

Of an unworthy life.
