Bleeding Out

      No Comments on Bleeding Out

I sliced myself,
broken glass
on wet fingertip,
and as the red
curled around the sink
I wondered,
almost aloud,
how on earth you fit
inside my veins.

THINGS I NEVER NEEDED

Lyrics:

Take a long hard look at my face
Take away the things I can’t replace
Take my heart, go on take it away
I’ve got nothing to say

Take away this sense of regret
Take the things I need to forget
Take the mistakes I haven’t made yet
They’re all I have left

I don’t want to be the one who lets you down
All I did was run myself around
I wish I could have seen through your eyes
Maybe then I would have realized
I’m the only one who’s bleeding
For the things I never needed
Things I never needed

Take a good long look at yourself
Take the weight off anyone else
And take the hardest blow that was dealt
It’s all on your shoulders

I don’t want to be the one who lets you down
All I did was run myself around
I wish could have seen through your eyes
Maybe then I would have realized
I’m the only one who’s bleeding
For the things I never needed
Things I never needed

I don’t want to be the one who lets you down
All I did was run myself around
I wish I could have seen through your eyes
Maybe then I would have realized
I’m the only one who’s bleeding
For the things I never needed
Things I never needed

      I have a dear friend who is critical of the concept of ‘need’ in relationships. He tries to tell me I should never need another person. But when someone slips so far inside of you that they become a part of who you are… When they get inside your blood in such a way that you don’t realize their affect on your anima until you’ve been sliced open… The organics of that kind of need are not easily abnegated.
