Sleepless Scars

September 29, 2012
Trickling down slowly,
Over the ridges of old scars,
The fresh blood descends
Replacing the unshed tears
The newly opened wounds breath in pain
Dark circles, bags, outline the hollow empty eyes
They stare back in utter self hatred and sickening shame
The sleep deprived mind spins in circles
Dangerous whispers heard all around
Blood drips to the floor
The worthless nobody
Lies, cradling her sleepless scars
The red crystals smearing across her face
No one will know her feeling of emptiness
No one will ever see her sleeping scars
Hidden from the world they continue to weep
Begging, SCREAMING, for help
But they are muffled, silenced and unheard
They rot, lonely and cold on their own
She pastes a fake smile on her face
Covers the hollow black around her dead eyes
And walks into the blinding sunlight
Her sleepless scars...
