Scarred

(To have believed, again...)

She said it would hurt once,
and that it would be worth it.

I ran a hand over my scars—
they yet burned my heart.

I knew I would hurt for eternity,
worse, because I yet believed,
and believing failed me
again.

  1. I’m so deeply moved in the way you structure out your thoughts in your verse Scarred. You practically adorn the page with so much dignity, – to have believed agan. God!!! Your beautifully embellished page makes me cry, for I know scarred has a permanent effect on the mind, because that in itself is the healing process.

    1. I agree, scarred has a permanent effect.
      This piece came out of a deep scar. And I have to admit… I shed a tear or more before I wrote it. The words would play and replay in my mind day and night. I couldn’t wait to bleed it all out.
      I am glad and sad that you felt my lines here, because Scarred is depth.
      Thank you for your expression ❤

      I am glad these lines spoke to you and, though sad, it is also comforting to relate. Thank you for sharing as much ☺
