A Poem by Pain Love & Skulls

How do you sleep at night

Knowing

Knowing what you have done

The pain you caused

The damage you did

The scars that will remain

How do you sleep at night

Peacefully, calmly, in comfort

While knowing what you have done

While I cannot sleep I lay there in pain

Cant catch my breath to save my life

Tears stream down my face like a waterfall

The pain was almost as bad as how bad you hurt me

I sit there and think

Think about how I will never fully recover from what you have done and said

 Think about how I always came back

For years

No matter what you said or did

I always came back

But never again

Never again will I come back to

And be your little play toy

I was a page in your book

You read me and never look back

But you don’t care

It doesn’t affect you

You don’t care that you used me, that I am done

And will never come back to you

I will never be hurt by you again

But you will never care you are emotionless

How do you sleep at night

Knowing

Knowing what you have done

The pain you caused

The damage you did

This is un-refrained which is fantastic.
"Never again will I come back to
And be your little play toy
I was a page in your book
You read me and never look back"
I'm quite sure people have said that to me before, and that I have said it to others also. So I understand both sides of the poem.
I really hurts, doesn't it?

Anyways this was an excellent poem.
Keep up the great work!

Honest, TRUE!!! think each of us has experienced the pain of "being a page in their book" but, then I suppose we've also been the author of such pages entered into our own life journals???

Think I've done that, just hope the balance is more to the good than the wicked.

Very strong and powerful, your words are knives aimed for the heart!
The lack of grammar only makes it more appealing, and more heartfelt. Makes the emotions stronger, as if it has come straight from your brain to the page.
Well done,

The rhythm was a bit off but the story this poem tells is nonetheless impressive and well thought of.

Pretty good. I think it could be smoothed out, a few commas could fix it and maybe if you fix up the middle to b sort of like the beginning and end it would flow better.

I loved it. A couple of places you had run-on sentences and you needed some apostrophes, but other than that it was absolutely amazing.

Open, the larger text really seemed to pound it in.

Very open, very emotional. Great work

Oi, that hurts. It made me a little sad in a good way, you got an emotion out of your reader, I think that's what every poet should try and am for. Fantastic, fantastic, and awesome.

Very powerful. I think this is a really good poem, but the only thing that would help is the use of stanzas because it is slightly hard to read. Otherwise, nice work!
