Scarlet letters bleed from my bare hands.
His words seep in, stain red my memories.
Murderous touch of poison I can not withstand.
Overwhelmed by goodbye, fall weak to my knees.

Gasping last breathe for one second chance.
Love now forever lost, my heart ceases.
A haze all I see, a light now enhanced.
Alone tucked in by red I rest here in peace.

My life, my love, the air that I have breathed.
Suffocates me now with words of goodbye.
You claim it’s gone, then my dear you may leave.
This knot of our bond I will now untie.

Murdered by farewell I will rest here alone.
It is only a scar that will heal the blood flown.

Hm. The breaks in sentences made me stop and look closer at the words. The language makes me imagine pain, too. Very sad horrible feeling. GOOD job!
