Crimson Red

Razor thread slicing

Acid drops of pain

Hanging

Like poisonous pearls

 

Quicksilver dagger

Plunging

Twisting

Stabbing

 

Agony of Crimson red

The thundering

Pounding pulse

Throbbing

 

Slashing frayed ribbons

Ribbons of frayed torment

Lashing a whip of steel knives

Cold iron burning away

 

Squeezing fist of torture

Gripping in burning talons

Slicing sinew

Raw and bleeding

 

Throb of every vein

Wave of agony

Tide rising

Sea of misery

 

Drift away

Float into nothingness

Lifted up to weightless

Relief

 

I’m sure to most, this sounds violent. In some ways it could be considered that, but it’s nothing more than a woman voicing a pain that happens frequently. I am aiming this at women and girls, for if you go through it, without explanation, you know what I am talking about.

This has been in my mind for a while now, one of my coping mechanisms when I feel like crap.  When the heating pad just won’t work, or when the fetal position is all I can stand to be in.  If it helps, then I’m glad. 

Any guys reading this…. You may want to move onto another post.
