Picking At Scabs

I can’t focus
And I had to be told why
The things I deny over and again
Don’t disappear because I will them to 
And the things I yearn to cling to 
Fall through my fingers like cupped water
This is the way its all been determined
No I don’t turn my back on that
But don’t make me pick at bloody scabs
Stream forth the vitality of my soul
Yes, yes I am in pain
But what does it matter
I mean it, what does it matter
You care now; what about tomorrow?
Don’t lie and say you won’t forget me
Don’t tell me you will hurt
So far, far away when I wilt
For you
Just leave me with my scabs

    A very clever way to express your anger, Misty! "Just leave me with my scabs" evokes a painful image.
