Wound

Wound

A Poem by S. Michael Long
"

its something.. i dont know what it is.. but its something.. tell me what this is about..

"
The open wound would not heal,
around 12 years old it began to steal

began to take began to drain
offered supplement from its bloody stain

kept me wishing and dreaming true
kept me away from what was you

lied to me and stole my youth
put a gun in my hand, made me bulletproof

made others love just what i am
even if for just a turning glance I forced his hand

made me a family through my skin
bled me bored me begin again

adjust adjuticated to co-incide
i rule half this world with my own sweet pride

my faults my failure and my guilt
creating others from this wound i cannot heal.

I really like this, it's one of the few i've read in awhile that interests me greatly. Favorite line would have to be "I rule half this world with my own sweet pride". Really nice job!

I can totally relate to this, i like your "free verse stanza" style and your flow of thoughts. This is very emotional, and you can read it again and again, it's never out of your head. Wonderful!
Thanks for sharing..Keep it up :D
