A Forgotten Memory - Poem by misty wright

I bury my lies
One last time
As my world crumbles
I'm slipping into the darkness
Still being told I'll be fine again
They say you made it through this
Once before you can do it again
But no one undestands
It's not the same as before
I wanna give up so bad
I can't do this anymore
I can't stop these urges
Please someone help me
I won't be fine again
Don't ignore me like i'm nothing
What happened here?
I used to mean something to you
Do these scars upon my wrists not bother you?
Everyday i'm reminded how much i hate
That part of me that won't go away
It eats at my soul
And the answers are so unclear
Tell me what i'm supposed to do
Why will no one listen?
I want to dream forever
Because in my dreams i'm free
And hurting no more
Can you answer one thing?
Will you miss me when i'm gone?
Or will you fake it to save youself?
I'll tell you I've taken all i can take
I can't believe in anyone
Cuz they'll fail me everytime
Just please forget the wrong I've done
Don't be ashamed of me
I've never been perfect
But neither have you
I'm letting go of all the pain
I've learned to hide so well
There's nothing left for me to lose now
It's so hard to find the words to say
Everything I've wanted to say for so long
And i know it's not like me
To hold back
But this time i knew
I'm done being silent
I ripped my own self in two
And i don't know what else to do
So i'm doing this my way now
I'm done letting people stand in my way
Someday soon things will
Be fine again when i'm gone
Give it up now cuz
There's not enough of me left to save
In time the pieces of me
Will fade and i will become
Just another forgotten memory
So I'll slip away unnoticed
And slowly be forgotten
As i end the pain thats
Killed me for so long

    The pain you must feel is felt in the words you have expressed in this write. It brought sadness upon me as I read it. I hope things do turn around for you and that you may one day find the peace and joy that you seek deep within your own heart.
