Poetry From a Broken Heart

Image via Freepik

The voices scream words at me

Coldness always caresses my skin

Fear is injected into my body's veins

I loose track of where all I've been 

They coax and plead me to join them

I fight back and never win

I'm denied my choice of freedom

I ready myself to sin

The scratching against my skull

feels as if it might crack shortly

Getting me to this point was easy

making it feel so courtly

I follow as they lead me

The cliff is high and I lose my breath

I dive off toward the dark waters

Understanding I had no choice left
