The First Cut

Image source: Google

They say the first cut
Shall always be the deepest
Oh yes, they were right

Oh yes, they were right
I can see the dark crimson
Flowing out of me

Flowing out of me
Love that I have felt for you
Erasing the pain

Erasing the pain
Taking away everything
I then close my eye

  10. I hope that is not the ebbing of life itself but the flushing out of a bad experience that she underwent. Since I can't do poetry, I am in awe of your simple words and the imagery you created.
