when i am awake, i want to sleep

be rid of the feelings my soul can keep

i’m keenly aware of the dark clouds within

they hold me back with chains round my skin

my skin breaks open from the constant pull

leaving blood and scars alone to rule

the scars are much deeper than they first appear

i feel i’ve been slit from ear to ear

can someone please help me….do you hear my cry?

“i’m weary of this battle,”  i say as i sigh

donna marie
