I watch as you slip thru my bleeding fingers.

Watch as I lose more of you as every drop of blood hits the floor.

Watch as my fingers bleed more the harder I try to hold onto you.

Watch as my fingers swell and grow stiff from trying not to lose you.

But I fear that my fingers and my heart are bleeding in vain.

I fear that even the pain felt surging up my arms is not enough.

I fear that the blood dripping from my fingers is blood dripping in vain.

I fear that I lose you more everyday.

I lose you the more I pour myself out to you.

I lose you the more I expose my inner self to you.

I fear that I am watching you slip between my swollen, stiff and bleeding

fingers as each drop of blood spills to the floor.
