Pretty Picture

Published by at 6:39 am under Goodbye Poems

I made a painting from my blood
The sidewalk’s smeared bright red
I lie down and I think of you
I wonder if I’m dead

I picture every inch of you
The way you were last year
I picture what your face looks like
It feels like you’re right here

I lay my head down on your chest
The steady rise and fall
I think of how you used to smell
I’m thinking of it all

I think back on past memories
My eyes are still closed tight
I think of how your love would feel
In darkess, cold, tonight…

I feel you kissing my forehead
You make me feel okay
Like everything you’ve broken down
Can be reborn today

I open up my eyes again
It’s harder now to think
But looking at the dark night sky
I watch the bright stars blink

I notice that you’re not with me
I guess I hoped you were
But it has been a long time now
I’ve been replaced by Her

It’s colder now, I feel the wind
It looks like it might rain
I don’t know how long I’ve been here
I’m numb to all the pain

I made a few cuts here and there
Precisely just enough
I tried to make it work just right
I’ll die and I’ll be tough

I finally feel the rain pour down
My blood is washed away
“My pretty picture won’t be seen,”
I think with great dismay

They find my body late that night
The smeared words I had made
The crimson letters on the tar
Had not started to fade

By miracle untouched by rain
This fact had made most cry
The letters saying, “I love you.”
And simply signed, “Goodbye.”

    such beautiful words constructed to leave a dire, broken heart sad. the lights always shine in the darkest path when you open your eyes and heart again.
