You need not shoot me,
for your words are bullets.
Never mind metal tearing my flesh,
your tounge is more than adequate.
Shots only leave me bleeding,
your abuse leaves my soul weeping.
Show me mercy,
rip a hole through me.
I'd rather watch my body seep in rouge
than have you ravaging my mind
Show me my blood,
let it flow,
right from my chest,
from a place you will never reach.
