The scars run so deep
They will never truly be gone
No matter how hard I try to forget.
The scars are painful,
But the memories are even more so
The memories haunt me.
The scars can almost be forgotten sometimes
But then the wound is reopened
And as the blood flows I'm left to tears
I'm bleeding to death
I attempt to hide behind a smile
Though some days it's too much
I can only pretend for so long
Before my mask begins to crumble
And raw emotions begin to seep through
None have truly seen behind the mask
No one notices when I want help
No one will help with the pain
How can I talk about it with someone when no one will listen?
I have lived my life in solitude
Confined to myself
Living like a hermit in my own head
The scars will forever remind me
