Society keeps these secrets locked up.
These are the moments I wish to bury
Honesty isn’t my style
Shroud the memories in apathy
I don’t feel denial
Russet eyes that plead guilt
Seething wounds that don’t go away
The gaping gashes that make me wilt
It breaks no one’s gaze
I paste this smile on everyday
Act like a steadying wind-up toy
Wish I might, wish I may
I’m coming uncoiled
I scoff at self-respect
I laugh about my pain
I grin about the thought of death
Forgiveness does not remain
Do I sound like the laughing child I used to be?
I’ve grown and experienced suffering
I’m hit with the demands of society
I know in my head that I can’t keep running
Heart beating, thumping, jumping out of my skin
Eraser memories etched in burns
Fire wrapping up my shin
Sharpie-covered arms bear hateful words
Hospital kids that play the same game
Sterile rage threatens sweet sanity
Escaping this delusional confusion is my aim
The part I play is not who I want to be.
I count the days that go by
I’m a porcelain doll threatening to break
These words I scream, these words I cry
I can’t control my rage
Delusional child, where is your mind?
I lost it long ago
These moments I cannot rewind
‘Lady Madness’ what happened to your hope?
Fingertips dance on the lettered keys
I channel my energy through this medium
Please understand the words I preach
I think I’m ready, I think I’m done
To rot in this coffin, so soon- a sin
Don’t dig me out of this hole
The tightening, winding rope too thin
The prospect of death:
I am sold.
So. That's about it, just my feelings and shit. I worked pretty hard on this so if you could rate or review that'd be great. Yup. c:
