Paint the Skin with Scars

Paint the Skin with Scars

A Poem by Nath
"

Inspired by and based on the song "Paint the Sky with Stars" by Enya. Doesn't have a thing to do with that song, though.

"
Teardrops falling from my eyes
While my blood still stains the knife
And I let out a silent sigh
As I paint my skin with scars

Only the night will ever know
Why I never let much skin show
It knows everything you don't:
That I paint my skin with scars

I weep and I just want to die
I want to let my spirit fly
But heaven to me seems so far
Because I paint my skin with scars.
Night brings with it peaceful dreams
Just too bad I cannot sleep
As I sit here and cry and weep
And paint my skin with scars

I scream and cry out to the night
And all I want is take my life
But from me heaven is so far
Because I paint my skin with scars.
I will never make it right
So when I'm dead there'll be no light
And I die a little more each night
When I paint my skin with scars

Slightly edited version.
Dedicated to: Enya, the awesome lyrics of her song "Paint the Sky with Stars", and Isabel Abedi's book "Whisper".
I exchanged just two words from the title and that was how I came up with this one. I tried to base it on the song, but it's a completely different topic, I do sometimes use lines similar to the ones from the song. Just for your information and to give the creator credit.

The pain and raw emotion in this piece is very apparent, but there's this slight glimpse of hope in this piece also. It isn't the greatest subject to read about but everyone deals with their pain in so many different ways. Sometimes these ways can be healthy and other times they merely cause more pain in the long run. But I hope you understand that pain is a part of life and I hope you don't give up on it. Great Write!!!

The impressions I get reading this poem are just extraordinary !! I don't usually like poetry that much, but I really enjoyed reading this piece of writing !!

I can certainly feel the pain in this poem. The flow is good and the poem is expressed well but not a nice subject, and far too many people who are suffering far too much. Perhaps you might at least find some somfort in the fact you are a good writer and your words may well mean a lot to others.

I know how you feel. The dying inside, the pain, the tears.. I've been through it all. You just have to make life better and laugh and enjoy time with your friends and family. :)

This has such a great rhythm to it, its a nice read and the repetition is amazing, makes the poem much more profound. I think its very nicely written.

Firstly, Your poem is as beautifully written as any of the songs sung by Enya.
I love her "Only Time" fantastic singer.
The words of the write were filled with pain and depression.
Really great write! Nice job.
