May 2012
Droplets of blood glisten
Like rubies in the snow.
I cannot lose her
That’s the only thing I know

Every time I close my eyes
I see her shocked face
Looking up at me
From that blood-soaked place

What really terrified me
Was seeing my hero there
Covered in blood and crying
Fear tangled in her hair

Guilt drags me down, down
Like an anchor at sea
All of this is my fault
I made her come with me

We left red marks on each other
Holding hands to lessen the pain
Those surface marks have faded
But deeper imprints will remain
