    Scars


    Slash
    One--
    For my broken heart.

    Scratch
    Two--
    For the internal anguish

    Slice
    Three--
    For doing wrong things.

    Scarify
    Four--
    For having wrong things done to me.

    Sever
    Five--
    For letting them happen.

    Slit
    Six--
    For the anxious soul.

    Stab
    Seven--
    For not understanding why.

    Sliver
    Eight--
    For appearing so damn strong.

    Shave
    Nine--
    For a calmer mind.

    Score
    Ten--
    Just for being me.

    Impressive working of words and imagery! The poem is clever and even the "visual layout" of the words is nice. But...I wish you did not feel so familiar with these things.

    I hope that you are not SHing but self-conserving now. :hug:

    Hi MoAnamCara,

    I first want to compliment you on the strong visual imagery that your poem invokes.

    Second I want you to know that I understand the self-blame that you are feeling and the feel/need to punish ourselves. I just hope you remain safe.

    Thanks Jaime.

    Last night - something happened -


    You


    Was that you?
    Really you?

    I felt your presence
    So strongly.

    I wanted to believe,
    But was scared.

    I’m sorry,
    I should know better.

    Thank you for showing
    That you are still with me.

    I love you, I miss you
    My keeper, always.
