My scars show the real me
My smile is a mask
My tears are my true emotions
I can pretend all I want
Cover it all up
But the pain stays
Waiting to show on the surface
Like all my other scars

hmmmmmm...

i'm thinking about this piece.  are these real physical scars you speak of?  or just emotional ones?  and i'm curious as to whether or not it's fiction or non.

this topic strikes a chord with me, and i get rather curious.

[[[it's the internet and no one knows!!  yay!!]]]

at first i wondered why white oleander was in the six dollar bargain bin.

and then i read it.

since i don't mind talking about myself and the bad choices i've made at all i'll answer your questions.  This is fact and the scars i carry are real.  I no longer do this, but the longing is still there.  I have scars up and down my forearms where i burnt myself using a glass coke bottle and a candle (not very fun).

Hmmm...I could see a few people in this piece. Intriguing to say the least.

Remember to reply as well as post.

Hm... this is quite a disturbing poem... I think it's interesting how you depicted your scars as being the only true window into your soul.  Interesting.

Keep in mind that poetry that glorifies self-harm and/or suicide is unacceptable.  This doesn't glorify, but mentions it... so I just felt the need to remind you.     Keep the guidelines in mind.

Hope to see more of you in here.

I like your poetry, quiero mas.

...I feel like that a lot, I rarely smile, I don't know why, that poem reminds me a lot of myself. Good work.

Hey... i know what you mean by this poem... and i cut, or used to cut myself too. I have a lot of scars, that alwasy remind me of all the bad choices, and scary times in my life, and unfortunately, i am prbably not through making bad choices... i am glad that you are though. I am glad you have stopped. I am in the process right now, and it aint easy.. thats 4 sure.

I want a relationship i can finally sink my teeth into.~ Alexander Sterling
