   I am bleeding

Please make it stop

Someone pick me up

Carry me to safety



Carefully stitch the wound

Cleanse it with the burning alcohol

Stick the needles in and out

Pull my skin together



Cover it with a pretty band-aid

Seal my pain inside

Hide my wound from the world

Maybe I'll tear it open again
