An Original Dark Poetry piece about regret and the heartache and suffering it brings!
I shed a sea of tears today, it came as no release
But brought to mind the bad times, I’d buried to find peace
Every day I was too weak to make the hardest choice
Avoided confrontation, cowered, suppressed my inner voice
Now I’m just left longing, for what is out of reach
Been beaten, weathered, cast aside as pebbles on a beach
No needle ever scarred this way and broken bones may heal
But all the healing in the world won’t change the way I feel
It’s hard to hide from consequence of actions you regret
The ones that truly never leave, the ones you can’t forget
How it might have worked out had I walked another road
Then maybe in these darkest days, I’d not feel so alone
Nothing burns so badly as emotion, hurt and loss
Hidden in a private Hell, your burden and your cross
All the times I told myself “I’m okay, I’ll be fine”
Now I know I lied, feels like I truly died inside
Seemingly I’m shackled by a shell I can’t control
Emotionally crippled, cold and darkness fills my soul
