Poem: Etching in My Mind

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Etching in My Mind" is a poem that describes how one feels after he's had an argument with his loved one.

Words spoken in haste often put a wedge between two people in love.

There is a picture embedded in one's mind that time doesn't erase. Feelings fade.


Ecthing in My Mind

Manners and ways,
words spoken in haste,
no amount of love
can ever erase
this etching in my mind.

A wedge created
between your heart and mine,
faded feelings
drift away
with time.


Words scar more than you think.

Think before you speak.
