I Have Been Bled

I can feel my life is
Draining away from me
I can see its crimson trail
Pouring away from me
I can see my past is
Playing out in my head
I can hear my breath
Becoming slowly dead

I have been bled
of Hope
of Dreams
of Life
where joy and pleasure strain
where only hurting now remains

I can feel you are
Reaching out to save me
I can see the tears
Welling in your eyes
I can see my death is
Etching itself in your mind
I can hear your sobs
Echoing as I leave you behind

I have been bled
of Sanity
of Reality
of Love
where your touch no longer stays
where only your grief now lays

I have been bled
to hear no more
I have been bled
to speak no more
I have been bled
to see no more
I am empty forever more
I am bled
