To Bleed

Empathy is a jagged knife held in another's hands
cutting through my silken eyes, 
cracking 
open my head.

Oh, but my love, remind me,
what is this pain so sweet
that breaks my soul
down to the bone
and leaves 
a beating
heart
to
bleed.

Silence never felt so loud against my own ears
when the screaming finally paused, 
it only increased my fears.

Oh, but my love, remind me,
what is this pain so sweet
that it breaks my soul
down to the bone
and leaves
a heart 
to 
bleed.

Trembling hands held a phone to my head
buttons pressed, message sent
all that was left 
was the sirens roar
the sirens roar
the sirens roar!

Oh, but my love, remind me,
what is this pain so sweet
that it breaks my soul
down to the bone
and leaves
a heart
to 
bleed.
