Screaming Alive


My heart is already torn and shattered
From years of being beaten and battered
If you want you can keep it safe and protect it
And if you choose, you can nourish and mend it
Or you can break it until it shatters once more for good
I close my eyes and cry under my jacket hood
Under the barbwire it's bleeding
Oh God! It stopped beating!
Won't you save me?
Or continue to stand and blame me?
I'm calling your name, don't you hear me?
Or do you choose to ignore me?
Cut, slice, rip, tear
Don't you hear my screams fill the air?
It isn't fair! It isn't fair!
Oh God! He's not there!
You can use me as bait
But you cannot kill what you did not create
Pushing my fingers into my eyes
It keeps me safe from their lies
My heart is already torn and shattered
But you are the only thing that ever mattered!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
