Kissing Life Goodbye

Scissors break
(thump, thump, thump)
Through innocent flesh.
She bleeds,
Inside and out;
Screaming;
Screaming for mercy,
Forgiveness.
She screams for help, but no one hears.
Help does not come.
She kicks, bites, punches,
But to no avail.
She grows weaker with every agonizing second;
Every torturing hour.
And she closes her eyes,
Closes her mind;
Dying now;
Kissing life on the cheek
Kissing life goodbye.

I actually really liked this - you have great graphic imagery and sense of flow. The only thing I would personally change are the lines about the kicking and screaming - if you instead compared it or described her angst instead of telling us about it, it would make the poem very powerful.
