Trauma

A blank stare welcomes my visage
Deep in my heart, hoping its a mirage
Fingers trace scars that now replace beauty
Once was grace now nothing but ghastly

My reflection gifts me with a face that is shaken
A constant reminder of everything that was taken
Bloody tears well as I fall to the floor
A cry as I crave heaven’s opalescent door

I tried to move on but the dark pushes me back
Nightmares hell bent on pushing me off track
Sickness takes over my dreary waking hours
While the face that is no more plagues the time of stars

All I can do now is just live
Smile and make pleasantries to all my kin
Maybe one day someone will finally see
Maybe someday i will eventually be free
