Skin Deep


A thousand needles in the eye
A heartbeat faster than you can see
Leaves you reeling in the dust
A tired sigh escapes my teeth
Ah, another bolt of misery
Shooting through my face
A series of shots of agony
Staring breathless in the face
Bricks are piled with their edges
Cutting farther into grief
Strained vision, all things are blurry
Even with my alleged belief
Swords are splitting more than skin
Words are shredding more than hearts
A single drop of simple acid
Can tear your life apart
My eyes are tired of these sores
My mind is restless with the need
I wish I could speak the falsity
And say physical pain is skin deep
