Redemption. The pain is tempting. A tumultuous need increasing With every delicate touch Of your burning hand. Don't. I want to hurt. To atone. The sting of the slap; Pressure on my wrists; The sweet agony of your teeth In my flesh-- Please. I need to scream. To pay. I pray you punish me. I deserve all you can give me Take away the control Of everyday. Absolution. I need redemption. To bleed.
