My heart beats in my chest,
the world stops, watches
as small drops of blood splatter upon
the floor of my soul.
I kneel upon the ground,
Dark tears washing my face.
My eyes trace the splashes of blood
Upon the black, transparent veil before me.
I hardly notice the blood upon my hands,
Torn and stinging from tearing at the veil.
I can see you, faint and glowing white,
Reaching out to me from the other side,
The side I can never reach from where I am,
Where I tear and scream and cry until my voice fails me
And all I can do is beckon feebly at your form.
Can you even see me?
Are you even there on the other side?
Or am I crying and tearing at the veil in vain?
I am tired.
Exhausted, from trying to reach you.
Whenever it seems like I am getting somewhere,
You get further away,
The glow fades,
And I can no longer see you.
I am alone in my world of pain.
Do you see the veil?
Do you see the blood I spill to reach you?
The tears that fall within my soul?
I can see you,
But I can't touch you.
