Drops Of Crimson



I'm all alone cringing in fear,
staring at the edge of steel.
Living on the fringes of hope,
pain is the only thing I feel.

Insanity cuts into real,
and inhibitions start to fade.
Anticipating the release,
an inner need empowers the blade.

With the pounding of each heartbeat,
drops of crimson flow from my vein.
And my anxiety stops throbbing,
as blood takes away the greater pain.

A feeling of serenity comes,
as the hurt trickles from my heart.
And drowning in a scarlet pool,
I watch my dreams drift apart.
