this is real and red and
fever pitch hot like boiling but
this is real in a way that before wasn’t because
you bleed and that means you’re alive
or that’s what you repeat everyday like a prayer
this gaping wound hurts but the warmth
is safe in a way you trust you know
you bleed and that means you’re alive

resentment replays over a litany
sometimes you have to bleed just to know you’re alive
you’re alive
replays over a litany
sometimes you have to bleed
you’re alive
replays over
sometimes you bleed
you’re alive
replays
you bleed
