These Cuts

April 7, 2011
By Anonymous

The cuts, they are so deep
Blood wells, dripping to the floor
As the light fades, I hear him crying my name
He's begging me to stay, I whisper that I love him
I hear the sirens, then I knew
He was for real
I hear him crying,
His sobs, they help me climb back out of the deep, black hole I am in
I look up into his eyes and swear to never leave him
The cuts, they were so deep
But love,
Love healed me.

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black. Tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.

I love the vivid imagery and powerful message about the power of love.  Keep writing!  Five stars!
