Why won't these scars heal?
Why won't they go away?
It's been months since the blade,
But still they stay.

I carry scars upon my wrists,
Imbedded into flesh,
It tore and it bleed,
The blade and its test.

I hold scars within my heart,
To deep to ignore,
The jagged pain of love,
Red raw and sore.

I pay for my mistakes,
They sleep in my mind,
My dreams are bruised,
They never are kind.

I once learnt a lesson,
To ditch the blade,
So I did so,
I feel I dearly paid.

My emotions bottled up,
Why won't these scars leave?
Because of them I started again,
Because of what I see.

Why won't these scars heal?
Why won't they go away?
Ever because of that night,
They shall always stay.
