Imbedded Scars

As I lay in bed, I close my eyes
and I slowly fall asleep
I toss and turn all through the night
and quietly I weep

If ever I lay still enough
I'll enter into a dream
It usually turns into a nightmare
I awaken with a scream

The reality of the past
is imbedded in my mind
sometimes there is so much hate
but it's peace I'm trying to find

Suddenly it's back on my mind
and there's nowhere to escape
it will scar just as easily
as a cut, a burn, a scrape

Plastic surgery can help these wounds
but this one will never heal
I will carry this for the rest of my life
or until I cannot feel
