Red Ink

Red ink seeps into my skin

Words in crimson shown to them

Inked symbols tell my story

All across my body

Alone, Worthless, Slave...

All this and more

Deep within my skin

Ink used to show the mark

Never last long enough

Alas that mark is forbidden

Never to be shown

Ever hidden ever bleeding

They don't want see

Too quick was this decision made

Never approved the lasting mark

But it's there, not going away

Here to stay, No matter what you say

Author's Notes/Comments:
