The Scar

No motivation,no desire to move on,
and the rut deepens every day;
My mind is a nuclear holocaust,
as my soul just melts away.

The stifling blackness looms over me,
ready to claim it's prize;
Just another loser in a barren sea,
destroyed by believing the lie.

I wish I could tear my heart out,
and hang it somewhere else to heal;
And return sometime in the future,
where we never have to feel.

There are some hurts we all can handle,
and the scars will someday fade away;
But some gnaw at you like cancer,
and just haunt you all your days.

    Wow Carl, this is both sad and moving. God has the capacity to heal the scars that to us seem to be written indelibly on our hearts. With our new hearts comes glorious sleep. I am so sorry for your pain, how very brave of you to share it.
