Etched

and the secrets
within these walls
haunt me
kissing my soul
tasting the pain inside
etched in broken glass
these bitter sweet dreams
taunt me
the nights whisper is heard
begging to be let in
away from the dreaded world
I close my eyes
and listen
silence fills me
and steals my breath
the clock never strikes
the same number twice
but the seconds that pass
are all the same
here I find my truth
and I close my eyes
and listen  

Scars

the dark clouds
they linger
once the clock
strikes midnight
taking hold
of your once
pure soul
you try to escape
feeling its power
take complete control
you smile
the feeling so comforting
caressing so gently
your every thought
kissing so sweetly
your innocent scars
screams so loud
but no one to hear
alone and empty
the feeling soon fades
another sleepless night
greeted by
another dreadful day  

Red

I count the minutes
as they tick by
ever so slowly
every single second
just like the last
the pain
washes over me
my heart
Is too numb to see
dark and cold
it gets harder to breathe
as the night takes over
the colors of sin
stain the room
painting my naked skin
I close my eyes
hoping to escape
but all I can see is
Red
I’m painted red
