Scar You

May 16, 2008
By Jeff Schappaugh, Petersburg, IL

I’ve been exposed to something new,
never thought it’d come from you.

So look me straight in the face,
I’ve finally caught your lie today.

Could your soul be so black,
would you ever take it back?

Fight your fear, you can’t admit,
dying within, deal with it.

See the way that my eyes shine?
Burning like the firefly?
I hope they scar you deep inside.

Now you think you’ve had enough,
but you’ll move along to someone else.

So spread your wings, just once more,
and fly away, you stupid – girl.
