False Painting


Please leave me alone.
The voices in my head wont be silent
Can't think, can't breath.
Wanting to escape this terror.
No where to paint for my arms are full of the scars as well as my legs.
Do you know that you are to blame?
Silence in black and white.
The pain throbs everywhere.
It hurts to move.
Covered from the world because of you.
I can't live as if my body is the canvas and my paintbrush is a razor.
Please stop shouting in my head!
All  want is peace.

I am strong enough now to say stop.
Strong enough to ask for help.
I thank you for silencing the evil in my head.

Forever more shall I stay heard.
