I had a wound
So deep and raw
I would flinch
Eyes filled with tears
The wound has healed
Etching scars across
My soft pale flesh
Reminders of the
Pain I no longer feel
And I don’t care
Any more

  1. Very sound writing – and you summed up what so many people go through – and I know is it is hard for some folks to talk about scars and even wounds still healing (and how sometimes salt can be added in – ouch!) and poems like this are extra special because so many folks cannot go here ( for various reasons) – anyhow – fist bump to you 💕
