I’ve incinerated the evidence, burned the lines of truth off the page

I wrote it out 

Blood let it out and

Drew it out

After it all destroyed the evidence so no one would know

And no one could tell

It was addressed to you 

The truth letter had your name on it, emblazoned

Its written on your brow, battle lines drawn in skin

Bloodlet lines

Scars of sticks and stones thrown

Bloodlet lines on paper

Lines on skin

It was a prayer, for forgiveness, for the father
