the marks on my skin
scars, you say?

no

these are not scars
not battle scars to me

for me, they tell me a story,
one that gets told time and time again
because each time the story slips
it must be rewritten
retold
reborn

In some states of mind, these could be battle scars
but that is another's perception

every mark to the skin
every broken piece
every cell split open
wow, I've been gone for a little bit. Kind of had an epiphany and started to write. Hopefully, I am back in the groove of writing for a little longer. My mind has been so cramped and full, and hopefully, my writing more will help me.

Dazed minds
Tear stained cheeks

The result
of a broken heart
a broken mind

The ones you love
It's never enough for them

I just can't win, can I?
wow, I've been gone for a hot sec. I swear I'll try to post more.

That feeling
Before the first sob escapes:

Body shakes
trembles
the lump in the throat
the suffocation
the complete
and utter despair
face scrunches
eyes ******* shut
the muffled noise
like everything around you disappears
And all you are left with is the sadness and bitter thought that you have no one
and you seem to never

You never know
the true meaning of grief
until you witness
someone you love
disappear.

The light of your life
suddenly is gone
and shifts your world to dark
and you're stuck
because you were never prepared for the dark
but life is like that
and sadly you had to be the light that disappeared
        -to granny; I love and miss you dearly, and I hope you are not in any more pain, wherever you are.
This is a very personal piece. Grief is a terrible and consuming emotion. If you ever need to talk, my inbox is always open.

I want my tears to spill
I want to become enveloped
by this wave of strong and deep emotion
but all I can do
is sit at my desk
and stare numbly
blankly
emptily
at the board in front of me
another piece from my notes

"How do you feel?"

You really expect me to be able to answer this?
I don't even know
the winning answer
the real reason

Numb
On the verge of tears every day
ignored
alone
I just want it to stop
WHY CANT I FEEL NORMAL?
WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?
lil something i wrote in my nites during school

You spent your whole night
wallowing in your pity
and loneliness
your self-loathing
and exhaustion

But at your waking hour
You step outside
and you think to yourself
How could I leave this?
How could I leave this beautiful world?
How?
