That New Color

Long nails tare that flesh
Bleed me a new color

I feel the pain in my face
Eyes want to squint and lips
Want to taste the tears
This face hasn’t felt the warm comfort
In a long time

Cry Cassie cry
Let your eyes feel the salty
Comfort
So dry they are
And waiting to bleed a new color
Eyes so blue
Let them be red tonight
Bleed me a new color

Scream Cassie Scream
Let the world know
Let them all hear your anguish
For those feelings that never cut through the skin
Let the world know the doom of darkness
With one sound
Scream!

Beat down the walls
Tare at the shell
Drown in the color
Let them see hell.
