I used to be an artist,
But then, I used to be okay,
I think I used to feel, sometimes,
Though I'm mostly numb these days.
I have a heart carved in my wrist,
To remind me I'm alive,
But its presence just proves to me
Proves to me I won't survive.
I have 'This is me' carved in my leg,
In case I try to forget,
But the way it makes me feel so trapped,
It's something I regret.
I think I used to be an artist,
But then, I used to feel,
There was a time, so long ago,
That I once thought love was real.
Sketching hollow hearts in school books,
Slightly crooked, always red,
Today I went back, and I amended,
Wrote on each one that love is dead.
Just in case I ever change my mind,
Go back to how I was before.
I think I used to be an artist,
I'm nothing now, not anymore.
Just more ranting from me.

Wow this is intense and it flows beautifully, rhyme that doesn't take away from the poem always makes a strong message. I can relate to this alot and I think it speaks for many. Great write :)
