You Will Never Know


The words I spew out,

Ugly words,

Cruel words,

Over which I have no control.


The darkness I keep inside me,

Eroding me,

Killing me,

But you will never know.


The tears I’ve wept in the night,



While you’re fast asleep


The secret pain I hide inside,

Searing me,

Consuming me,

Cutting in so deep


The scars you’ve never tried to find,

Still hurting,

Still fresh,

Still burnt in on my skin


The demons that lurk in my eyes,



Where I’ve locked them in


No you will never know,

Never understand,

Never see,

The agony that is mine to bear


You close your eyes to all that’s me,

My heartache,

My misery,

The screams you refuse to hear


And I wait and wonder in the dark

How long

How soon,

Before he looks and really sees


And how I’ll drown forevermore,

In black,

In torment,

As he flees

    Who hurt you so bad to make you have to write this? (Just joking! I know most of your poems aren’t about you 🙂 )
