She showed me life

She showed me life

With the tips of her fingers

And He took it away

With the back of his hand.

His palm,

His knuckles.

She was always dressing the wounds,

But even once they'd healed,

The life that bled out

She was never able to put back.

Sometimes I see stains of my soul

Between his guilty digits.

The End
