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

"Love Scars" is a poem about the pain she feels from the hurt etched into her heart.

"Love Scars"

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

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