Diamond- Picking Scabs Again.

Diamond- Picking Scabs Again.

A Poem by Jack Diamond

Well it's obviously a poem about self hatred and thought's of suicide. It also does have a deeper more subtle message.


Lungs fill


Heart beats


Warm Blood runs through my veins


In perfect health this body works


To bind me with it's chains



Bright tresures rise but turn to swine


Some gift this is, this mind of mine.


Tortured my my own existiance


I walk the path of self resistance



Past misfortunes big or small


They taunt each waking hour


Memories triggered by everything


from a corps to a pretty flower



Why am I tortured each night and each day


What's wrong with me?


What made me this way?



Why can't I controll this hatred and pain?


I'm ready to lose


I've nothing to gain



Heart just plaese stop


I want you no longer


I'm tired of fighting


My shadow is stronger



Lungs just give up


I don't want your breath


Just too scared to learn...


What comes after death?



Dear God can you save me?


relieve this regret?


Take out my pain


I wan't to forget



If you really love me


Please help me I'm dying


I don't love myself


And I'm tired of trying.
