Bleeding Clean

ink_in_water_by_lukematthewsI doubt you’ll read this
As fragile as you are
Not ready for the truth
Embracing the lie
Oblivious to life
As it passes you by
Focus compromised
In the light of day
Blink and take it in
Then find something to say
So you can bleed with me
Slow and tentative
But building speed
Preparing for a fall
And I don’t blame you
With your iron lungs
That breathe in deep
Then exhale deceit
But I’m done listening
Even though I still care
It’s your own fault
You’re my cross to bear
And I’m throwing it down
Like cobbled stone
Hoping it sticks
But it probably won’t
So I’m cutting deep
And letting it flow.
