If You Say Rise Up Lights It Sounds Like

you dragged a knife across my heart 

the way i used to drag a blade across my skin

there was so much blood

there is so much blood

and i cannot stop the bleeding

ive tied a thousand tourniquets

ive tried pounds of pressure

nothing can stop the bleeding

nothing will stop the bleeding

there is so much fucking blood

and i am drowning

in the red-


but i can’t blame you, can i?

not when i handed you

the fucking chainsaw.
