So after Pyrrhus’ pause, A rouséd vengeance sets him new a-work, And never did the Cyclop’s banner fall On Mae’s armor, forged for proof eterne, With less remorse than Pyrrhus’ bleeding sword Now falls on Priam.

Doesn’t seem fair that the sword should be bleeding before it even makes the cut.
It is, it would seem, a terribly important strike of the sword. The world itself has paused and thundered in anticipation of Priam’s death. The sword has all the power/remorselessness of monsters. The sword bleeds, even before it breaks the skin.
