Bleed Out the Pain

Written by: Jayne Eggins

as you took a step to leave,
I started wiping the blood 
that began streaming from my eyes


with this separation,
I bleed you out


scaling my nerves
on a whisper of echos,
I watch you disappear


consumed in a deluge,
my heart thumps out 
every single drop
I possess


I am a bloodless corpse
devoid of life


but I am more alive
than I have ever been
