soul mates

Hold a candle to my face,
Look deep into the scars,
Study them,
Now,
Look to my eyes,
The deep blue staring empty,
Into everything around them,
Seeing only hostility and pain,
Look harder,
See the faces I’ve seen,
See the blood of the cuts,
The barrel of a gun,
As it eases into my mouth,
Look to the deepest reaches,
See now,
What I see as I look in the mirror,
Do not turn away,
See my pain,
See what I see,
And see how badly I,
Want you to save me.
