My mind is a battlefield;
I try not to yield.
When the past and present collide.
I can do nothing but hide.
I wait for the scars to fade away.
To keep it at bay.
But it still finds a way,
To consume me, come what may.
A wound that bleeds but leaves no scar, Memories that haunt from near and far,
A pain that grips and won't let go,
Trapped inside, no way to show.
The mind, a labyrinth of pain,
A wound, injured by things inhumane, Emotions tangled, raw and deep,
A secret that is a burden & is hard to keep.
A shattered past, a broken heart,
Pieces scattered, torn apart,
A life forever changed by force,
A journey through a darkened course.
The wounds still remain, so deep.
In every crevice of my soul.
Oh, how, I try to sleep,
But the memories take their toll.
Deep down I long to be loved
But Ikeep my hands gloved
Because fear holds me in its grasp
Because I know no one’s love will last
The pain too great, the wounds too deep
I can't bear to take this leap
So I’ll stand there all alone
Pushing away all love shown
In solitude, I find my peace,
Away from all the noise and grease.
I try to love, to muster my strength,
But I can’t help but keep everyone at arm's length.
Alone in the darkness, I stand
Pushing away every outstretched hand
But it grips my heart like a vice
Covering my entire soul in unbreakable ice.
