Raining Scars - Poem by Lance Carthen

I am standing outside
The sun is shining
But its raining inside
I keep trying to smile
But my face is too dry
Dry from all the lies
Peeling with no compromise
A slowly evolving suicide
Rocketing to hell
I wish she was still in my life
She showed me a love that I had never felt
Touching my face, making my ice heart melt
Remembering the passion of the once great life
Feeling the pain of the angels bloody knife
Im tossing and turning I cannot sleep
I reach out my arm and find nothing but an empty sheet
God I wish this pain would leave
I would give everything if she was here with me
One more kiss would last an eternity
The feeling would be all I would ever need
To release the demons within that feed
To dig my grave and plant a new seed
Rise from the dirt and leave my grief
Start life all over with no insanity
Never again invite love in my life to be
Be the recluse thats oh so discreet
