What if
I took this blade
To skin.

What if
I cut
So deep
That I bled you a pretty red river.

Until I was
Drowning
In crimson.

What if
I cried so much
That I made you an ocean.

Until I was swept away
By the saltwater tide.

Would you rescuse me
Or watch me slip under?

Would you hold my hand
Or let me fade away?

What if I loved you
So much
That my heart was shattered.

Until I made you a wasteland
Of decaying love.

Would you love me?
Or watch me fall to pieces?
