[tab id=1]Sliced deep,
Slashing veins and arteries in it’s wake
Until emotions spilled, oozed and gushed like blood.
Crimson-thick, dripping wet
Impossible to stop.
Felt the heat,
Vacate my body in a quake
Emotions overflowing like a flood
Left me unfeeling, unwilling,
Cold lifeless desolate waste land
Don’t look at me
Don’t acknowledge me
I’m simply a shell, a broken reflection of what used to be.[/tab]
