To Hell and Back

To Hell and Back
By Laura Dee Battle
December 20, 2014

Frantically I'm pacing through 
Everything I used to do
I'm laying down but still insane 
Strap me to this rusted frame 

Make it stop, the voices here 
Inside my head, but nowhere near
Make the sounds of crashing cars
Destroy the tears that seem bizarre

Knock me down into the drain
Take away my damaged brain 
Just make it stop, the truth I sought 
I cannot stand the light I bought

Burn away my softer skin 
Feeling every scar within 
I cannot feel another lie
Why did I never get to die?

Maybe it's darkness creeping in
Bleeding from my scars within 
Never have I fought so much
Through hell I go without a crutch 

For once I feel the pain is real
My prize to gain for this ordeal
It's only now that I can smile 
I'll let you in; please stay awhile

    Whoa, are we sure we want to know the truth??? Yes, it's so painful but it's the path (sometimes through hell) to peace. Masterful work my friend!

    You can really feel the emotion in this write, really well done.

    I like this,but think it would've done better with a abab pattern instead of the aabb...but the feeling is there!

    Hello Laura, WOW! Love this, very intense. In a way, I can relate to the voices, ... I hope the smiles stay with you for a long long while, no need in going back... Enjoy the holidays, I sure will... Love Linda
