Pain Can't Take Away Pain

Poetry By: An Excuse To Speak Of You

I think someone I care about is self-inflicting injuries on themself, and I didn't notice till it was too late to talk to them about it today. It hurt me to find this out, I've been worrying all day.

I've been down this road,

A road you shouldn't tread...

Seeing you like this, in pain,

Fills me with a dread,

A dread of taking too long to notice...

At this rate all of you're feelings wiil be dead...

Don't do it, Don't even try

The next time,

Everyone else will be the ones who cry...

I saw the marks,

Scarring you're pretty hand,

Makes me worry and,

And hate the thoughts of you doing it again...

To kiss all of tose gashes, I must do,

I'll take all of the pain from you...

You should remember that I'll be Here,

Waiting for you're words I wanna hear,

Because what you're going through Dear,

For years I have held very near...

Don't do this, it hurts to see...

If you must, you can take it out on me...

Just never let the pain touch you're skin,

I'll hold that hand,

Admiring what a world we're in...

Next time you feel the need to do it,

Call me, I'll help you through it...

Please don't do it again,

Because pain can't take pain away,

Only love can...
