Always there, when I trip
Always there, when I slip.
Hopefully never going away
I pray forever that you'll stay
To my dearest, my darling, blood
That small cut shouldn't have caused a flood
I know you just want to see me, to say hello
But I rather that you cancel your show.
So red, so wet, so very pretty
What keeps me alive, do I dedicate this ditty.
Always inside me, where it's at home
I really wish that it'll never roam.
Now, blood, what are you doing?
That nick's there because my leg-hair needed shooing.
Now, please stop bleeding, for just a second
I'll need a bandage, I reckon.
Blood, please be with me always
And never be splattered across all the hallways.
If you do, I fear I will be dead
Leaving so many things unsaid!
Hey, blood, may I ask why I piss you every four weeks?
And why do you appear when I pop pimples on my cheeks?
Do you like the outside world much?
And why you have such a soft touch?
Blood, I owe my life to thee
Yet still you torture me when I scrape my knee.
Why do you cause pain when you drip out?
I have I done something wrong, or given you doubt?
Oh, blood, I hope that one day, you'll understand
That I need you, baby, more than music needs a band.
Never will I go anywhere with you
And I mean it – it's true!
Full of cells, red and white
Taking on diseases as a fight.
Transferring nutrients and things my body needs
All the while, it bleeds and bleeds!
The drink of vampires, the thing that gives life
Can come pouring out with the slight of a knife.
So, my dear blood, I want you to know
That I love you, from my head to my tiniest toe!
A/N: I'm not insane. We should all appreciate our blood every once in a while.
