Short poem

I have to suppress my heart, Till the pain fills my mind, My lungs frozen in time, I suffocate the memories, To patrol my thoughts, I take life from my dreams, My own hands at fault, I stab, I cut, I bleed. I silence cries of mercy, Murdering the old me.

Short poem

Would you love me then, If you could see my halo, Shining in the dark. Would you be so quick, To tear me apart, If you knew wings were beneath my spine. Will I then find your heart?
