Drawing first blood

i wished to disappear

and thus wipe the stain.

Why wasn’t i allowed to faint

and plead away from this-

mess, blood and gore.

Wasn’t i too young

to go through

this slippery, painful path?

Why didn’t i have a choice?

Why wasn’t i asked for a face?


Red! Red! Red!

Why did i have to redden

and squirm yet another time?

Is that a consolation-

that you all go through this?

But i hated myself,

don’t you see?

And each time, it was another

stab in the heart.

Have a heart and give me a chance

to clean it up and start again.
