My heart’s bleeding
The night before
A lone one,
Thoughts — how’d I die?

Or perhaps something else
More sophisticated;
Less sloppy

Sadness rings
Ears gone stale
Heart is numb
Tears stuck — face is marred

2 am — monochrome thoughts
And curious nightmares
Monsters under the bed?
What a laugh!

Stuck in a conflict
Of the senses
Winner takes it all —
Sorrow and the blame

Never wanted it all,
I am standing in the dark
With a bleeding heart
Feeling it — alone

I am dancing it away
In a burning room,
Bleeding heart,
And a cup of tea
