The Pain Within

by Mezmeryz   Apr 11, 2006


The pain on the skin
Slowly fades away
But the pain thats within
Is there to stay

The scars on the surface
May seem to fade
But feelings in a furnace
In the heart theyve laid

Burning deep inside
Till they turn to coal
Emotions hard to hide
Concealed in the soul

The tears flow.
Weighted with feelings,
Every drop so pure
Escaped emotions, face aglow,
But not the final cure.

The longing and desire
To see a flood
Overflowing Crimson River
Silky ribbons of blood.

Visions in the darkness
A darkened dream
Of outlines so lifeless
A long silent scream

You see the still body
Lying lifeless on the ground
Rigid, cold and face pale
Lips utter no sound

Enthralled by the sight
Of yourself, robbed of life
Vision giving no fright,
Of the hand with the knife.

Cloaked figure at large
Every suicide, his murder
Over minds he takes charge
Then no notion is further

After every whim of hope
Light snatched from your day
No longer able to cope
A death-wish when you pray.

The heart and mind
No longer pursue
And there seems
No need to strive
When death seems
The only way through
Youve let pain take over your life.

    *This was my favorite stanza. The diction you use here is amazing. I thought you did a wonderful job with this. It so full of deep emotions and pain. I LOVE the imagery you use here. It has both a sad and dark feel to it. Very sad poem, but I can relate. Keep it up hun. This was brillant ^.^ Nik*

  • It was good. it had a good flow to it. you know like it came straight from your heart. And you have amazing work when it is from the heart. I loved it. But the only part that bothered me about it ( and this is just little non-important stuff) the stanzas were all the same amount of lines except two of them.
