Bleeding for Love
she looks down at her wrists
the blood dripping from her arm
pooling by her feet
she watches her reflection
the drops of blood causing a ripple
she starts to cry
and the tears slide down her cheeks
"I just wanted to be loved"
her dreams had turned to nightmares
her heart feeling ready to give up
"Why couldn't I have my dream"
she walks towards the couch
she curls up
her hands tucked below her chin
"please give me happy dreams"
a tear slides down her cheek
she shuts her eyes tightly
