Broken Man Beyond Repair

This is a poem about the inevitable defeat of life versus another man. It’s about someone who has gotten past a lot of pains and challenge, but in the end they know they are too damaged to come back from it.

Broken Man Beyond Repair

Empty whispers in my eyes
Followed by disheveled sighs
Each breath constrains, a lust for pain
The world I knew, it’s not the same
My throat closed shut, emotions tie
Topped with a bow and firm goodbye
I am the victim of myself
The scream that see’s no sign of help

I signed my name, a thought for tomorrow
The pain that came, the deepest sorrow

For a moment I somehow knew
There was nothing left for me to do
Fatigue filled inside, a pulse of pride
Breathing still, barely alive
The cold chill, it touched my skin
The fix that sticks, the purest sin
The pain that won’t go away
It’s part of me, like night and day

For a moment I held on tight
And became one with the night

I tried to somehow raise my head
Internally, already dead
The world left me, broken and bound
All that’s left are empty sounds
Scars when traced tell of the past
The things in life that never last
Searching for some empathy
A place to hide, a place to be

It speaks of empty, it somehow sees
Why there’s nothing left for me

I play the scarecrow to my smile
Living in a pure denial
Time it seems is stuck in place
With pain that’s frozen on my face
Every breath is chilled design
With hope I never seem to find
And still I walk, I walk away
Absent from thought, another day

And yet the thoughts won’t go away

I touch my arm to test the pulse
Slow and steady, seeming false
The trickery in fate’s design
The hate is all I claim as mine
Each day is filled with broken bliss
Fragments to things I’ll never miss

Yet they stick around anyway

Come get lost inside these eyes
They will feed you with my lies
As they tamper and deceive
You will find the heart of me

Bent to hell, it can’t believe 

Corrupt and broken, lifeless strands
The symbols of my final stand
A heart that gives in, lost in time
Is broken without hope to find
And while it may reach, it may hope
A broken heart, it cannot cope

The pain will hide and always tame
The whisper that will drive insane
Like a shadow, always there

A broken man, beyond repair

  1. Very deep. You verse describes attempted healing but with scars so deep there may not be a return., yet you keep on. I like this one a lot, although sad, it speaks volumes.

    • This is kind of like my personal anthem. When I put it together it was me spilling myself into the paper in a way that could illustrate what was going through my head.
      I’m glad that you likes it. And glad that it made you feel some deep feelings, feeling, that is my main goal with any piece of writing.


    • I truly appreciate that. It hits a special note when people can see through the words and really grasp the feelings behind them.

      I’m glad that you could relate and appreciate your time in checking it out.
