Lament to None

Lament to None

A Poem by Shayla Sayer

"a war within"


Lament To None


The skin parts

Cells spreading to create a path

A carving in the flesh

A masterpiece on my own canvas

//Heal me//

I shiver but my body is not cold

The pain is dull, a throbbing

And I gasp for air

Choking on the stark nothingness

//This is my life now//

I smile and my teeth fall out

I do my makeup and have no eyes

I cling to a dream of perfection

Fed to me by lying fat cats

//I will never be your type of beautiful//

I laugh at a joke you told

One that I did not hear

And my mind races to find a word

Countless to add, one at a time.

//All heroes fall in time//

I wield a sword of cunning

My shield is pure wit

And I defend myself well

Cloaking the war within.

//My heart has given up//

Just hold me, and pet my hair

Let me pretend love is real

But you fade, a cruel mirage

And my tears join the nothingness below.

//Heal me//

i love to write. i have been penning down my feelings since i was 13. in my own opinion, writing is sort of like love and wine--it only gets better with age. more..
