Leaving you heart behind...

Like fire on an open wound

Like crawling on jagged glass

Like nails being torn from the flesh

Like a heart erupting and choking

In it's own blood.


That is how I left you.


With faint steps and a numb awareness

With trembling hands and a blurred path

With bleeding tears

That mingles with your own

Until all the world

Drowned in one big

Crimson tear drop

And left a stain on our




That is how I left you.
