Scars

Source

The place you left me in

A broken shell

I see the cuts

The bruises you left behind

These scars are with me

To show me the pain

That you have put me through

All the memories

That I don't want to remember

Freedom was always in my mind

That was my salvation

A waste of life

A waste of time

Your ugliness

Broke through me

With you I was always alone

The knife couldn't

Penetrate deep enough

The razor blades on the floor

They didn't penetrate

As deep as you left my

Heart diseased

Torn up

Broken

Beating for you

No more
