The hold my past has on me.

My past keeps sleep at bay. The hurt that feels fresher now than then, that I worry will never go away. It kills me that my up bringing casts such a shadow on me.

Will it block off parts of me that deserve to see the light, make me paranoid distrustful and angry. Hamper any relations I try to pursue. Or worst of all make me an addict myself, putting my family through the same torture that was placed on us.

Will I snap and go crazy, or slit away my life, letting flow the crimson sea that lets this pain go on, to just end the hurt... But that hurt is passed onto the ones I leave behind.

Or Mabey do what comes so natural to me, laugh and joke, smile and sing, burying the pain and cries for aid, making sure that no one thinks to help.

And then when these feelings rush my heart and water my cheeks, I will read and write, write and read. Until the hurt is numbed for now, as I place a fragile lock on that obsidian cage of torment and anguish. Yes, I think I'll do just that.
