Poem Commentary

well i wrote this for my friend....

It's Only Me

 

I look different than I did before

I look like more of a monster than a person

Death has taken its tole on me

I now walk around

Scars on my arms, tears in my eyes

I regret everything I did but still needed to do it

I may look like the walking dead

But it's only me

I'm still the same person only with a different mind.

I never meant to hurt you or make you feel sorry for me

I just wanted the pain to stop

But I made it worse

No matter what I do the memories will always stay

right by my side until the day I die

Underneath all of this darkness

It's only me

Very well written. You are turning into a wonderful writer. :) Koolmom0

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
