The New Me

The only way to avoid pain

Is not to feel

I once believed having emotions

Made one real

Out of everything  I was dealt

I was the only one suffering

Dealing with hurt

I Now know was inflicted by self

Now my heart is black

With the calmness of a hearse

Rendered my worth

Destroyed the essence of character

Took away pleasure

Silenced all laughter

Left behind the sad mug

And what I used to be

What I once despised

Made me see

Now I can be everything I was

By taking away the love

By taking away the feelings

Left in it’s place

My reflection is bleeding

As the new me is seething

Living hatred

Surviving off revenge

All though I may not cry

My eyes are boiling red

The better half of me
