...Save yourself, leave me...

Sorrow has clouded my fragile soul.
I can take this no more...

...My blood is yearning to be let out...

I stare at the silver edged blade.
It coos to me...wishing to be sated.
I outstretch my arm... I cannot help but comply...

...Sea of red, pain from cold...

I watch eagerly as my own crimson flows.
Fast and loose, it escapes my body.
I stagger to look at the blade.
Wreathed in crimson, it glints a smile...

...Forever shall it flow, free of me...

I sit wearied, staring at my arm.
Deep red in the centre, lightened upon out.
I lean over to the floor and gaze.
Crimson shed onto the floor, slowly widening...

...I am becoming free, but not too soon...

I cannot remain, I drop the blade to the reddened floor.
I sit back and wait... my heart lapses.
Death finally comes... he clasps my hand, and depart...

...'You shan't wait for long'...

'I am sorry my son, the Lord forbids it.'
