    Black waterstained pictures from the past
    flash in the insides of my eyelids
    as each eye lash holds pain that surpasses capacity
    Painful death raining in forms of
    ----------------T
    ------------------E
    --------------------A
    ----------------------R
    ------------------------S

    Tears crystalize into years of hardened anger
    lost as in the eyes of a stranger
    seemingly, no immediate danger from
    the repressed memories depressed
    preserved like pressed flowers between pages in a ooks words
    SMILE,because my real face is contorted
    All hope of life aborted
    Fragments unsorted
    collages of chaos with any sense
    I'm lost inside direction
    my back against the wall with my past staring into my soul.
    Nightmares
    Rise from my insides like shadow from the retreating sun
    Death from a grave
    my mind gave in
    and what i'v trid to hide came and again
    I am a slave to tthis pain.
    Doubled over caved in...
    Crying out in silent rage
    ------------------T
    --------------------E
    ----------------------A
    ------------------------R
    -------------------------S
    that a mother couldn't stop
    stop
    stop
    stop
    but does it ever stop?
    will it ever change
    or will i be raped from my pain forever?
    Will it rain forever?

    If it rained forever I would open open my wounds and let heaven's water drown me
    in eternity
    and pray to wash up on the shores of peace with my mind still intact.

    ?!?!
