Inside Out

Flawed emotions

come from resilient battle scars

Trying to ignore them, silence

their impact

but they scream out from afar

and with a clash they war

with my inside, truth

and outside, youth

ending in my pathways being a brew

of oddity and oddly, adoration

but lacking the basis to withstand the tides

I fall when they disappear

and I’m back to scraping back the skin

and blowing the mines

inside my mind

I huddle for warmth inside these rhymes

it’s the only cure to the consciousness

of my debilitating anxiety

it’s the only thing I have of worth

because it’s all I ever want to be

safe and sound, these halls of stone

irreplaceable persons I ignore

I failed you

and who knows how many more
