Faded Scars

We all experience pain in life, but we move on with life. Eventually, we’ll barely notice the pain, but still lingers in some forms.

Your Absence is Like a Pin Prick on my Heart

After two months I will still cry.

I will weep till my eyes run dry

And the sands of time rub them

til the red veins inflame themselves;

And the iris of my eyes glow around their rims.

After four months I will still moan,

Like a wounded coyote injured in the woods

Under the moon

Remembering when we were sitting many nights

Under the stars; connecting the dots to the future

That you said we would have ten years from now.

After six months I will only cringe at hearing your name,

Like an opera singer hitting the note sharp

And tweaking your ears so that they fold themselves

Back; to protect themselves from the pain

Of being damaged.

After eight months I can finally stop looking at your picture

I have lost the need to see your face; the desire has

Left me; just as you have.

You are just an empty face in memories that barely hold

Any right to be in my mind.

After a year I can walk boldly down the street

I hear a name or see a face that resembles yours and

It holds no fear of wounds; the heart does heal.

Only until I see a young man and woman holding hands

Reminding me of what we were or what we could have been

The trauma heals but I feel a pinch or an itch deep down because

Your absence is like a pin prick on my heart.
