Is Your Heart Bleeding?

There are scars

Some visible

Some hidden from the naked eye

Red welts across the skin

While others branded on the soul

The throbbing pain subsides

Replaced with a haunting ache

Like a phantasma

Of things that were

And then were gone again

Wounds heal

Bruises become memories

Scars are all that remain

Remnants of a wretched time

Stalwarts of cursed hours

Sometimes I find them redden once more

Not realising I’d been scratching at them in my sleep

In a vain attempt to obilerate them

I wonder if that’s why

I wake up sometimes

To find my heart bleeding

  1. I think our dreams sometimes bring back on many emotions too leaving us to awaken with a dread attitude for the day. Loved these lines…

  2. Your poetry is always stunning! Whenever your face passes through the new poems scroll, I recall that gorgeous poem that you wrote about the “Ballroom”! You see, memorable poetry is talent! πŸ™‚
