tears
falling thick
mingling with the blood
dripping from my red eyes
so red
ruby red eyes
falling to the carpet
where the blood shall stain
unable to be removed
so thick
so red
so ruby red
my arms bear the signs of a long fought battle
covered up
so no one can see
this war I'm waging with myself
the tears are falling thick
so thick
so ruby red
the blood is flowing smoothly
so smoothly down my body
the stain stands still
there will be no detergent to remove this stain
so thick
so ruby red
these scars are permanent
so permanent do they stay
fleshy white upon my arms
red gashes upon my heart
ruby red gashes

a/n: from my blog waaaay back in August, '06... a friend (DreamAtMidnight) recommended I post it.
