Shattered glass

My mind is filled with void 
I can't exhale
Nor breathe out.
I'm choking on all these words i cannot speak
Like shattered glass they 
Ache and bleed
So much it hurts on the inside
That i can't even cleanse
Those tiny, insignificant pieces of pain
And free myself from this guilt 
That's digging so deep into my skin.

Break me, crush me
I don't care anymore
Ignore me,
I'm too tired to care back
I'm too bruised to even notice.
It's still my body
That takes hits quietly.

Bitter with all my sore
I've tried to escape
Not my first attempt,
Yet not my last
I'm still breathing
I'm still fighting.

I am no longer my own hero...
Lights out...
I need to rest.

    Welcome to PoetrySoup Laura. I know this is a late welcome but, I have had some very pressing matters going on. I hope to be back and at full speed in the next week or so. Until then please keep writing and sharing your poetry. Love, Carol
