Crying...

Emotions felt deep enough to bruise
Mind erratic and confused

Knowing what I want and need
But allowing my heart to continuously bleed

Tears of blood fall from my eyes
Actions are not too far from my demise

Inside I am grieving
Suicidal thoughts conceiving

Fighting that inner struggle
Seeing reality is a constant juggle

Images flashing
Self torture rehashing

Attempting to stay above
And erase these thoughts of

Hurt and pain
Allowing inner happiness to reclaim

Finding that strength to compete
And stop focusing on deceit

Aww thanks Lady Dee...All the good comments have really been encouraging me to write more and grow as a writer...So, now I am attempting to expand in areas that have been untouched for me :) This is the first that I have shared...I always wrote from the heart releasing emotions, never considered it any good. :)
