Bloodstained tears,

Paint my cheeks,

I choke in the darkness

Afraid to speak.

Oh, don’t, don’t stab me,

Bring this pain to a halt.

Loving you so deep 

Was my only fault.

They tell me so gently,

As they dry my eyes.

“I have to let go,”

“I’m too precious to cry.”

Here are my teardrops,

Collect them like rain,

Dissolve me..

In an eternity of pain.
