"In Pieces" -Poem


Frying then prying

Hoping it works

Flesh tears apart

But the pain still lurks


Bleeding the truth

Written in skin

It's plain to the eye

But hidden with a grin


Realizing your fate

You run from the past

And maybe this time

It'll actually last


They tell you to stay

Don't go very far

Thinking they know

Forgetting your scar


They believe what they see

Maybe they're right

You've already lost

So give up the fight


You know it's the end

Yet you try to keep going

Drowning within

The hurt never showing


Screaming and crying

Waiting for more

Praying that one day

You won't be a chore


It's never enough

To just be you

So putting on masks

Will have to do


You want something different

But afraid to move on

Thinking it's pointless

They're already gone


So now all that's left

Is a broken soul

Pieced back together

But never really whole
