Scars

Scars

A Poem by Flames_of_Desire

Scars paint my skin
tattered and thick
to them I appear flawless
but I see all of my sin

 

My mind seems brilliant
bright to them as a star
but only I know
how it’s not resilient

Regret for my fate

I failed my lovers new and old

And lost the pleasure

That only love can create.

 

My body seems to disintegrate
before my eyes.

It seems as though on the road to temptation,

I’ve taken the bait.

 

My sadness is only rivaled by my understanding

Ignorance truly is bliss.

I wish to leave this place;
Rehx is too demanding.

 

What purpose am I to serve?
Why am I trapped here?

Who are the shadows whom talk to me?

I guess it’s what I deserve.

 

My sanity is coming to a close.
This asylum tears through my head.

My mind lacks a past to remember

As I lay back in my bed.


My head whirls again as I fall into sleep

Another day’s torment

Passes me by

As I go back to my keep.
