Rough damaged skin

Parting, pink and raw

Swollen and scarred

Unable to stop picking, itching

Calloused no more

For the callous is replaced

With fresh new pink skin

And the fresh skin

Is replaced with fractured skin

Nails digging

Teeth gnawing

What do you do

When the process of healing

 

Causes you to destroy yourself

Did You Ever Care

Ever gotten that feeling where you wanted to die?

Felt like nothing was left of you,

And you just wanted to say goodbye?

Tired of the sorrows that reign in your heart too?

Thought about the blade in all of its shine

And the regrets that buried in time?

What happens when all you have is hope,

But that leaves you too. How can you cope?

Do you begin again,

Or do you put it to a final end?

What happens when all apologies have left your heart?

How could you ever forget that feeling, so tart?

Resolutions seem too far past

To reconcile the love that was meant to last.

Maybe hope is too much to ask for

Even for the love that we promised to adore. 

-Bide your time and hold out hope-

To cast away the darkest thought,

just turn your sights upon the sky,

embrace it's beauty- love for aught,

which stands against the test of time.

 

Just keep your head above the clouds,

and bounded not by earth's restraint,

your shame is naught my love -feel proud,

and hold on till another day.

 

However sad that you may feel,

will pass in time as all things do,

but if they don't lets make a deal,

to keep on giving life a chance.

 

And in return I'll see to that,

your next tears shall be tears of joy,

so lay back down and let me pat,

your head until your fall asleep.

 

Bring forth the thoughts which make you smile,

bring forth the strength I see in you,

embrace these thoughts and in a while,

you'll wake up to another day.

 

---End---
