Forever and Always

Day in and day out,
I itch for your acknowledgement.
You don't understand how I'm feeling.
It's like a lion is stuck in my chest,
Roaring and clawing,
Trying to escape from the enclosure.
I feel like I'm alone,
Even in the most crowded areas.
I feel like I'm surrounded by negativity,
Even when I'm being given the most positive comments.
I feel like a scream is climbing up my throat,
Striving to escape.
Everytime I inhale,
My head spins,
And tears come to swallow my eyes.
I sit and wonder why you have the power to make me this way.
It's only you that seems to have that control.
I hate it.
I hate it with a passion.
You've cast a rope around my lungs,
And you pull tighter and tighter every second,
Suffocating me.
Once the rope finally snapped,
You acknowledged me.
You acknowledged me,
And gave me the truth that I never wanted to hear.
Memories faded from you.
Memories tattooed in me.
The tattooed memories stained my heart,
And they'll never go away.
Crystal water washed away everything from your mind.
All memories of me,
Left behind.
Now I sit here,
Enveloped in loneliness,
And forever am reminded that you walked away,
And washed it all away.
Tear streaks scar my face,
And scars streak the tissues of my heart.
Forever the wounds will stay.
Forever and always.
