My escape

by MERCY is never shown   Sep 22, 2009

I lay awake
as the pain slowly fades
the bruises form
and the cuts cease to bleed
i pay no mind
to the blood flaking from my skin
i curl up to the pillow
and wish for my escape
the one to save me
and take me away from
this short of nothing
living hell
i think of how
tomorrow I'll cover the marks
and act as if I'm fine
just to race to his waiting arms
and break
but tears of joy not pain
to feel him hold me
never wanting to let go
his whispers of how
he wants to take me away
make me the happiest girl alive
not knowing
I'm the happiest I'll ever be
standing by his side
just this moment
knowing he's here for me
he's my escape, my haven
and he'll be the one to set me free

    I pay no mind
    to the blood flaking from my skin
    ^^ i do not think i have ever heard it described like that i thought it was original and it grabbed my attention.

    this short of nothing
    living hell
    ^^ sounds like some of my bad days. i think everyone can relate to this feeling of being in a living hell it was a phenomenal way to describe it

    I think everyone knows the feeling of needing someone to take them away and be their escape. those type of people make this world bearable and if you have someone like that, hang onto them. I thought your writing was great. The only thing i would suggest is separate things into stanzas other than that amazing : )

    5/5 !! for sure
