As The Blood - Poem by Paige Draheim

As the blood runs down my legs,
I wonder, 'what is the point of it all.? '
As the blood trickles upon my wrists,
I wish I could just end all of the suffering.
As the blood pools into a crimson lake,
I realize I no longer have the strength to fight.
As the blood begins to stop all flowing,
I finally feel like I have all control.
I finally feel.
Alive.
