Bleeding Inside

 © levi hermanson 2006

The scares I conceal
The tears shed at night
My screams are not heard
My life has no light

The people walk by
Fooled by this mask
Not knowing the truth
Not knowing the past

Fake smiles and laughs
There's nothing inside
Exept depression and sorrow
My soul has now died

The years I  have lived
The horrors I've endured
The pain I have felt
The things I have heard

All the blood that's been lost
All the fears that I stow
Will not help me now
It will soon start to show

 A message from the poet : if you have any questions about my poem, comments or compliments e-mail me at
