Paint Me By Number

Paint me by number
Piece by piece
Long since forgotten
How to be free

Blue for my eyes
As tears do fall
Sorrow-filled iris’
Lost in afflicted thrall

Red for my lips
Secrets untold
Bleeding from within
Caught in danger’s hold

Jagged, faded scars
In colors of pink
Each one revealing
Pain’s solid link

Hues of purple
Dotting my skin
The hurt has spilled out
Leaking from within

Crimson for my heart
As it bleeds so freely
Wrap me in a bow,
I’m broken, yet still feeling
