Sarmad El samad

Abstract Drama


Broken And Bruised

Broken And Bruised

2 mins 198 2 mins 198

A broken lens I saw you through

A heart filled with resentment, born anew

Colors of life, gone, because of you

A truth that danced before my eyes


The world was crooked and broken and so cruel

Freezing from the ice that covered me whole

Burning from the hatred you made grow

Stinging from the flurry that broke my soul


I was fixated by the darkness that buried the truth

The tears flowed down, even as you ripped it all apart

As you set my life's work on fire and Spread their ashes over your ego


I felt the earth tremble and the sky crack

As you left me there on the ground, dying and alone

Grieving for what could have been


Crying over the lies I swallowed eagerly

Bleeding from the wounds that didn't exist

When the tears dried, I looked around


Everything was different, nothing remained unscathed 

My heart had turned to stone and 

The voices in my head laughed and echoed


I turned on the people I once thought close

I hid away beneath the crumbled walls

I lashed out at everyone who tried to help

I drove them away because no longer could I trust anyone


Despairing, I wanted to brave the abyss

To make the pain go away and the voices go silent

To force the shame down and to

Send my self hate deep into the ground


I wanted to, but I couldn't

Because ending it all means I let you win

I'm sorry, but ill rise again, not now perhaps

But soon enough
