Featured Writing - Bleed

Saw you sitting all alone in the dark.

I tried to help you but you pushed me away

I want to tell you everything will be ok,

But sadly you didn't want me to stay

 

So I will scream in your ear and give you the pain you need

Go ahead and bleed

Go ahead and starve

Go ahead and drink till your sorrows are gone for a short while

I won't tell you to smile,

I will still be by your side.

So go ahead and bleed.

 

I'm watching you fall apart

It still breaks my heart.

But this is want you want

I will never understand why you like this pain.

Do you still hope to hit a vein?

I want to tell you everything will be okay,

But you're too worried about how much you weigh.

 

So I will scream in your ear and give you the pain you need

Go ahead and bleed,

Go ahead and starve,

Go ahead and drink till your sorrows are gone for a short while

I won't tell you to smile,

I will still be by your side.

So go ahead and bleed

 

And I dread the day

When you ask me to stay

Cause I know that will be the time

When you will stop bleeding

And when you will start conceding

But you will let the world know that you

Went ahead and bleed

Went ahead and starved

You drank your sorrows away

Yeah, there will be that day

So go ahead and bleed
