This is Me and It HurtsCan you feel it?This is Me and It Hurts2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This needle beating inside my chest...
It tells me it's my heart,
but why does it hurt so much?
It feels like somebody once broke it...
And then someone came along and sewed it back up
but left the needle as a reminder.
But.. if I were to remove this needle
everything would just break again.
Can you feel it now?
Can you see it?
This isolation that I live with daily...
It tells me it's my home,
but why does it feel so empty?
It looks like a house, with four walls and a ceiling...
But hatred seeps from the walls
and broken chains lay along the floor.
But.. these chains are also binding
trapping me, alone, in this house that's no longer a home
Can you see it now?
Can you hear it?
These screams breaking the inside my of my head...
They tell me everything is alright,
but continue to destroy who I am.
It feels like I should be dead...
It feels like this negativity owns my life
and I think it is my life.
But.. it's the only thing I live for.
Life without a heartbeat.

My mangled skull starts to burn
I grab my head, and hold it tight
It gets dark, I see no light
I let go, my mind falls
Then it climbs, up the walls
I don't chase, I sit and grin
The pain now grows deep within
I start to scream, I start to shout
Then I start to crawl about
I turn my head, my eyes roll
My heart feels as black as coal
The cops are called, They lock me away
In a padded room, is where I stay
I know what's wrong, i've gone insane
That explains all this pain

I hate this place
I want everyone to disappear
All I ask is for my own space
This world darkens me
It crushes me to bits
And just the thought of being here
Pushes me into fits
The sun will flicker into dimness
The mountains I'll crush
I'll burn the oceans
The howling wind will hush
Nobody will ever smile again
I want to evaporate the sky
I can't wait for that horn to blow
This poem explains why
I'm the devil's perfection
Evil is why I live
There's everything to take
And I've stolen everything to give
All the frequent depressions
Break-ups and tears
I can scream my lungs out
But nobody hears
Nothing will ever matter
The end of the line starts here
Don't worry about anything
It's only everything to fear
I feel so empty
I hate this place
I want everyone to die
All I ask is for my own space

I write feel well
And be free
Let my thoughts land on paper for others to read
I don't want to keep them in
If they can help others
Let them read and see
If they ever felt the way I did.

To do all those things
That you could only dream of doing
Slicing open your wrists
To watch the life slowly bleed out of you
Hanging off that end of the rope
To feel the breath slowly squeezed out of you
Getting that gun, and taking the shot
To feel your brains blown out of your head
You want to do it
But you're a coward
Just do it already
And save the world
A whole lotta trouble.

Turning icy cold.
Touch them you will see.
Turning the darkest of blacks.
Let your eyes fall upon them.
You will see.
Feeling so lost.
Felling so empty.
What is the point?
Why continue the fight?
Why continue trying to make a life?
If you don't have a life in the first place.

To soil my name?
To turn others against me,
and leave me in shame?
What have I done,
To garner such hate?
What did I do,
To earn such a fate?
Loved by a few,
And despised by many.
I gain loathing by day,
My life worth less than a penny.
I cannot trust,
My feelings no longer considered.
If I only get pain?
Emotions dashed and shattered,
For others personal gain?
I'm not a thing,
You can merely objectify.
Destroying my internal walls,
As I try not to cry.
My face is a mask,
Hiding the hurt within.
I try to keep it inside,
To gain a thicker skin.
I've gained an enemy,
That once was a friend.
Words crumble my happiness,
Leaving nothing in the end.
A heart left broken,
Shattered on the floor.
I'm an empty shell,
behind a closed door.
