Free - Poem by Ben mcelfresh

The pain runs freely through my veins
The scars left behind on my arms
It’s evidence of the pain
Can you see it now?

Can you hear the screams?
Nothing left behind for me to hold onto
Will anyone ever listen?
Will anyone ever care for me?

Look around, and you can see
The razors on the sink
The blood in the drain
The pain that haunts me.

Now can you see what i speak of?
A terrible and unbearable pain
A life left without meaning
A soul plagued with darkness.

Maybe more blood
Maybe more scars
Maybe more screams
Maybe these will help you see.

Now sitting here alone
Angel wings on my back
Care free and worry free
Now finally....I’m free forever.
