Taking Away The Pain

Poem by: adetailedflameofpurestjoy

Summary

Drugs, alcohol, self-harm... We are all addicted to something that takes away the pain. But once the effects have worn off, we find the pain never did actually go away

The drugs you take make you smile

But this only lasts for a while

You pour another glass of whiskey to drown your sorrows

But the pain will still be there tomorrow

You make marks on your skin to get rid of your sins

But are you really pure after all this?

 

And then the depression comes back and hits you hard

Now the damage is done; you are scarred

So you hurt yourself again just to feel ok once more

You will never back to the way you were before

 

You cry and cry until there are no more tears left

How did you get yourself into this mess?

You can’t remember the last time you were truly content

All you have to live for is pain and torment

 

You have to drag yourself away from this fixation

Don’t waste your life on self-mutilation

Everyone is addicted to something that takes away the pain

But once the effects have worn off, everything is the same
