If Only.

If only you could see

The pain inside of me

Feiry flickering flashes

That sear across my heart

Entangling and belittling

A part of me that once

Felt so important

          So good.

 

If only you could see

The confusion inside of me

Murky malignant mist

That settles in my mind

Questioning and debating

A part of me that once

Seemed so clear

          So concise

 

If only you could see

The hope inside of me

Needy neglected nugget

That resides deep within

Presisting and irking

A part of me that once

Was so different

          So naive

 

If only you could see

The sadness inside of me

Clingy crippling creeper

That has rooted to the core

Weighing down and twisting

A part of me that once

Used to be so carefree

          So happy

 

If only you could see

The lies inside of me

Facade-icious flowing foam

That oozes down my body

Hiding and restricting

A part of me that once

Been so open

          So untainted

 

If only you could see

The shame inside of me

Invisible icy ink

That seeps through me

Breaking and filling

A part of me that once

Lived so innocently

          so honestly

 

If only you could see

The real me inside of me

Bumbling broken boy

That hides so very far within

Surviving and searching

For a part of me that once

Had been so real

          So very me...

 

 

 

If only you coulod see...

If only I could show.

If only

If only.

The End
