Scratches, cuts and scars
are easy to spot
You bleed and get bruised
sometimes even cry a little.
Ointment, bandages and stitches
can treat the wound.
In a week, a month or two
you're brand new.

But,
Heartbreaks and breakdowns
even those hurtful words.
How can you treat them?
All are invisible wounds
For some they're not even real.
they're all in my head, people say.
Meaning you're mad.
Maddening is their killing eyes
such poor sight won't let them
see beyond the skies
I not only see them
I feel them.

But,
can't treat them.
Wish pictures could show
the blood and the scars
left by this life.
A life that hold me accountable
after breaking my heart
and disrupting my mind.
