but the scars
on your arms
aren't as bad
as the screams
in your head

#poem   #head   #scars   #screams  
With only scars and thoughts,
Counting Scars

Last night,
I found some of our old photographs.
And memories shot at me
From 98 miles per hour,
And I realized that I missed you

No. I miss you

And running after you
Has been like chasing the clouds,
But I kept tripping and falling,
And I kept scraping my knees up.
Although I had wished
You to offer me a hand
I wiped my tears,
And picked myself up.

I let every bruise heal.
And even though here I am
With only scars and thoughts,
I am missing you.
And I will only continue to.

there's a SOML ((a 1D song)) reference there. It's been a while. :)

You look at my arms like you've seen a ghost.
You look back at my face as though
I'm not the same person I was a second ago.
You look down and ask me why.
I simply say,
"Look up at me, let me see your face.
I'm not that person anymore.
Don't shut me out.
Don't walk away.
I'm telling you I am okay.
So, don't worry about me.
Just walk beside me and be my friend."

my scars
ysabelle morales

i was always told to hide
my scars

under long sleeves
in the heat of summer
with long skirts
and opaque layers

no one can see
for the questions they’ll ask
i can't answer

because these scars

they are signs of vulnerability
each one tallying
a moment of defeat
another battle lost

more casualty
though the blood no longer
stains my skin

but me, myself, and I
am a sign of perseverance
i still breathe
and run and jump

i’ve endured the war
each scar tallying
a moment of survival
another fight won

so don’t tell me to hide
my scars

i wear each one proudly
medals of honor
and the questions you’ll ask

i’ll answer and say
"Yes, my scars are still here,

but so am I.”

All my scars are gone

All my scars are gone
There's nothing to remind me
Of the hell I lived

I always thought that you were perfect
Until you took your jacket off ,
And the sun broke through the window
And highlighted every scar on your beautiful arms.
That was the day that I realised
- you are perfect for me

i thought you were different
when you didn’t leave any scars

but instead,
you opened up the old ones
and thought i wouldn’t notice

until i found myself lying on the floor,
wondering why i was bleeding again

Fresh flesh wants out
from under
ragged
itchy  scars
The time ‘s
gotta be just right
can’t just rip off
the dead stuff
don’t want to bleed
anymore
than necessary

The  pain  of forced  change  , I do know it better than I  would  like to admit....
#scars  
Revealing the Scars.
Juliesen Night

Wolves of all,
Hear thy cry.
Save me from this light.

It blinds my cornea.
It burns my skin...
The melanin darkens.

Revealing the Scars.

The scars of the past.
Have been raised from the dead.
Resurrected now,
Revealing my sins.

Wolves of Old,
Hear my cry...
Save me from this world.
Take me from this life..

We leave so many
simple words unspoken,
either because we don't
have the heart or
the courage to ever say them,
and it's these things
left unsaid,
that gives us this feeling of
regret

It's these things that
leave us whispering
beneath our graves,
"I could have,
I could have,
I could have."

-k.v.

some words are better left unsaid, right?
