War InsideA Poem by shayne
How many people have to know of my secrets till I find one who'd get it? Fighting my way through self-injury is so hard
A troubled wind keeps flailing
Daunted by doubts and tears
Every decision weighs heavy
In the air I smell fear
Where to go and what step to take?
How much longer before I break?
Who to hold and who to trust?
Hasn't my heart been broken enough?
People leave and some stay
I meet new ones everyday
With whom to share and what to say?
What 'normal' things to put at bay?
Too many secrets
Silent mourns I couldn't say
The hidden scars stay patient
For a soul brave enough to hear the craze
How much longer should I pray
Waiting for 'my' person to come and stay
How much more of my heart is left
To risk and share before they run away
They've called me weak and some named me wrong
Others just keep staring
At the wounds I've kept for so long
The judgment, deafening; taking its toll
