if i were to bleed

if i were to bleed
would it take the pain away
could i release it all somehow
how long would it take
to feel nothing?
 
i have let the pain of
the world crawl too
deeply into my soul
i have married into it
the torture of love
and hate
 
my carapace has failed
to protect me
there is nothing left
but the blood that pours  
through my veins
flesh and bone
so easily crushed
torn and ripped
open by those
around me
i may as well
let my life force
run free
like hot wax
melting upon the earth
pouring a river
watching it flow away
wondering if anyone
would notice the blood red
oozing into the crevices
 
knowing how hard it would be
to wash me away  
 
i laugh at that knowledge....
