Poem: Permanent Scar

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

"Scars" by I Am They


All the dreams and plans we had
are shattered,
moments we spent discussing our future
no longer exist.

My heart felt many emotions
during our time together,
but none so dramatically sad
as starting a new life
without you.

I know the sun will rise again,
my tears will eventually stop,
but the footprints you inflicted upon my heart,
left a permanent scar
deep inside my broken soul.

"Scar On My Heart" by Keri Lynn Roche

I appreciate you stopping to read my work.

I, too, had nit heard of those songs before until I began my research. I am so glad I stumbled upon them...I do feel they fit my heartbreaking poem.

A heartbreak of a poem, Brenda, and wonderful songs I hadn't heard. Thank you.
