If only you would change

I just want things to get better

By Carla SofiiLove Garcia Published 3 years ago 1 min read

I can't hide the painful look in my eyes,

I can't hide the sorrows that my heart has disguised,

I can't help the way these tortures had damaged me,

I can't lie nor make up the things that my soul has seen,

I refuse to hide behind the false story of my smile,

My soul yearns to speak on all the hurt that it has compiled,

My heart has a dagger buried deep within the depths of its chambers,

From all the battles that its lost and it is now endangered,

The scars that your words have left behind,

Unrecoverable hurt led to my irreparable demise,

I don't think you knew the damage you created,

With your selfish acts and inconsiderate hatred,

These are my final words of freedom,

Words that waited so long to be spoken so my spirit could be done,

Goodbye to all those who helped in my burial,

I will return as a beautiful butterfly that will be perennial.
