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.

Poem Summary

Permanent scar is a poem about how a couple feels when they start a new life without the other one. No longer talking about the future. Their dreams & plans are shattered. Their love has left footprints on their hearts leaving a permanent scar on their souls.

"Scars" by I Am They


Permanent Scar

All their dreams and plans
are shattered,
moments discussing a future
no longer exist.

Their hearts feel many emotions
sharing time together,
but none so dramatically sad
as starting a new life
without one another.

The sun will rise again,
their tears will dry up like the desert
but the footprints inflicted on their hearts,
will leave a permanent scar
deep inside their broken souls.

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.
