Take my pain away,
even if it’s just for a day.
These pains keep reoccurring,
as if they were never fully healed.
Open wounds remain open wounds.
I need to reevaluate the way that my mind feels,
to make sure if it’s even real.
I’m sure someone would rather take my place.
And I’m sitting here taking everything for granted…
