When I am Broken

by Cardwell   May 23, 2012


When I am Broken
with all of life's scars
I look at my blood
Collected in Jars

I cut at myself
And save all the blood
To remind me of hell,
To be the person I should

When I am broken
and covered in shame
I like to take walks
out there in the rain

'Cause out in the rain,
And the thunder and lightning
nobody can tell
that you were just crying.

    Cardwell, this is such an emotional piece. I enjoyed reading all of it, but the part that I enjoyed the most was the last stanza because it reminded me so much of myself. That is one of the reasons why I love the rain because of the privacy it gives you when you just want to cry from heartbreak. Very sad and emotional. Thank you for sharing this. 5/5

    This was such a simple yet striking piece. I loved everything about it, the raw emotions and that feeling of total despair. Don't give up :)

    Beautiful poem- heartbreaking descriptions, especially the part about being in the rain, because it's true, few can tell when someone is crying.

    Keep it up
