The wound

Ever painful

Never healing

It was cut deep

Too deep

Fracturing the soul


A burden

A painful reminder

Of what once was

Of what could have been

Of what never was

Of what never will be


A feeling

A final goodbye

A new start

The old life gone, replaced, forgotten

As if it hadn’t ever existed  

A fresh start

Turning over a new leaf

Wiping the slate clean


Yet, the pain stays

Lessened, but there

It never goes

It is an everlasting remembrance

A scar, never disappearing

Branding you

For life
