The poem is below.



I knew deep within my soul
if anyone had ever got close to me 
they would get cast into darken dreams 
they would have to see all that darkness
they would have to feel all that pain
from their own darken past,
The cuts that gets deeper as time goes on 
they would feel the body aches 
the dislocated of body parts 
if they were smart
they would look the other way
not even walk my way to see if I was okay,
if they looked at me too closely 
they would find I am somewhere else
my tears will roll down my face like a waterfall
but when the tears fall to the ground 
they would make a big sound 
like broken glass from the past 
and when I was to talk 
my voice would be sobbing with no words,
silence would be all they would hear 
they would see something
was controlling me 
taking over all my emotions 
lighting up my breath 
given extreme pain deep within 
they will see they are going through
the same pain;
so, I know to keep all away from me 
if I can but things are starting 
to get way out of hand.
