Knife - Poem by nikki hays

glimmer of hope
she gleams so bright
steaming room
no will to fight
cold and steely
loves embrace
i lift her high
my lifeline trace
one swift move
her edge does slice
its over now
i close my eyes
i feel the warmth
heart i thought lost
pumps the fluid
i know the cost
warm flow of crimson
down pale flesh
this is what matters
this is my end
