Bleeding Forgiveness - Poem by Debbie Steyn

as darness falls
and all is dead
im sitting in the dark
thoughts of nothing in my head

cutting with a smile
watching blood cover my leg
I always said sorry
but you wanted me to beg

Now I'm bleeding for you
bleeding out all twisted sadness
I'm bleeding for us, me and them
bleeding my forgiveness

blood washed away
what you tried to make stay
I will triumph and win
proven that, by filling the coffin I'm in
