The blood runs deeper than the page, the shackles chafe and burn layers of skin. (Inspired by today's prompt: breaking away and the struggle of the written word.)

Blood Runs Deeper Than The Page

The blood runs deeper than the page,

The blood runs deeper than the page, The shackles chafe and burn layers of skin,

The blood runs deeper than the page, The shackles chafe and burn layers of skin, Drips of red, flowing fountain marks.

Numbers tattooed on my eyelids,

Numbers tattooed on my eyelids, Chips are implanted at birth,

Numbers tattooed on my eyelids, Chips are implanted at birth, Cuffs are worn throughout life.

Numbers tattooed on my eyelids, Chips are implanted at birth, Cuffs are worn throughout life. No escape, no freedom, no words left to write.

Ink diluted by the solvent of time,

Ink diluted by the solvent of time, Runs in blood down the city's walls.

Ink diluted by the solvent of time, Runs in blood down the city's walls. Lives are lost in breaking the shackles,

Ink diluted by the solvent of time, Runs in blood down the city's walls. Lives are lost in breaking the shackles, each a corpse in its well-marked grave.

Blood runs deeper than the page,

Blood runs deeper than the page, Ideas come and go like fireflies in the dark night.

Blood runs deeper than the page, Ideas come and go like fireflies in the dark night. Voices lost, mournful bells crying through the wind,

Blood runs deeper than the page, Ideas come and go like fireflies in the dark night. Voices lost, mournful bells crying through the wind, We as humans are made but to follow.

... Dedicated to the people who struggle to spread their views through the written word. They have no chance to break away from society. Never give in to hate.

That's Iqra... OUT.
