Pain So Deep

Haunting lyrics
Fill the air with
Sweet melody.
Heart squeezes tight
As memories swallow whole.
Barely healed scars
Open wide
Bleeding anew.
Pain washes over
Darkness acends.
Time may heal
But some wounds will always weep,
Ever close to the surface
Ready to tear at moments notice
To begin again
Raw and deep.
