Each Drop of Blood
By: Crissy Rizzotto



I sit in the silent solitude of my mind,
A moment of peace I canít seem to find.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
Aware that I am bleeding freely,
I await death; my resolve steely.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
I can feel my sanity slowly slipping away,
As the blue sky above fades into gray.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
Time steadily ticks past,
On and on this day seems to last.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
Blocking out the sound with silent humming,
Each droplet like horrible drumming.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
The silence is maddening,
The noise is deafening.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
Suddenly I find myself screaming,
Completely horrified by my own bleeding.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
The iron smell reaches my nose,
As the warm liquid soaks my clothes.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
I can feel my life ebbing away,
But I donít care, not noticing it above the fray.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
My screams die down gradually; my strength is gone,
I can tell now, it wonít be long.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
The fiery chasm of hell opens its hideous doors,
And out fly beasts and demons galore.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
Death reaches out its foreboding hand to me,
And I close my eyes so its evil I cannot see.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
The putrid scent of decay radiates from its hooded form,
Its robes of black ripped and torn.
Drip drip drip goes each drop of blood.
I open my mouth to scream but no sound escapes,
As I slowly drown in my own mistakes.
Drip drip dripÖ My death ends the flood.
