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

"Killing Me Softly" by Roberta Flack

"Love Scars"

She feels the pain
of a love so deep,
carved into the fibers of her heart,
etched forever,
from the one
who broke her soul.

Trusting her every breathe,
only to be suffocated
within his lies,
tormented forever,
with his love
playing in her mind.

"Your Love Kills Me" by The Veer Union

        Brenda, I bet we all have scars, I know I do, but they are healed. That's not to say that they remain in the psyche a lifetime. I loved your poem.

        Powerful,

        For someone to come into another's life, being reckless with the heart, never deserved such a love like that in the first place,

        sounds like she was worth so much more than she gives herself credit for...

        Time heals, but is never forgotten

        A very touching poem, Brenda. We can feel the pain of her broken heart and the scars that never really heal.

        Jason,

        You are correct.

        I think sometimes they never heal. It just becomes part of our new life with more walls of protection built.

        Thanks and stay safe.

        Keep writing.

        Lorna,

        Thank you.

        I do believe we all have a few scars that never really heal.

        Our hearts are fragile.

        Thanks for reading.

        Loves scars cut the deepest and usually take a long time to heal. Although sometimes they never heal. Beautifully written Brenda.

        Scars that never really heal and as your poem says "carved into the fibers of her heart". Beautiful yet tragic. Loved it Brenda.

        Leaves scars all right. Very deep scars. I like Roberta Flack. She was a friend of the Centre and played for us at our annual pilgrimages in New York.
