As Blood Drips from Her Fingertips


As blood drips from her fingertips
She remembers what led up to this moment
She was laid off once again before Christmas
She did not know how to buy gifts for her children

As blood drips from her fingertips
She looked at the slashes on her wrists
Now her husband could collect the insurance money
That was the only thing that ever made him happy

As blood drips from her fingertips
She remembers the yelling from her husband
Wanting her children to have a nice Christmas
Yelling because she enjoyed her laptop

As blood drips from her fingertips
She did not want to leave her children with such a horrible man
Their own father treating them like dirt
She had no choice

As blood drips from her fingertips
She did not want to leave them here
She only wanted the pain to stop
This was the only way

As blood drips from her fingertips
She hopes her children can forgive her
Darkness begins to surround her
She gently floats into the abyss
