Wounded

Wounded

A Poem by workscot
"

For some a life path

"

dagger of love

sharp on both sides

penetrates deep in heart


but with time

like a splinter

works free


leaving

a festering wound

a jagged scar

a distant memory

no trace at all

Not often, but sometimes I allow people to plow into my heart, digging deeper, scooping out love. I have potholes all over. It scares me someday i'll run dry. The thought of haunting memories lingering after a breakup possessed me at the start. Now exorcised from the thought I'm able to live once more. Great write, I feel your wounds as if they are my own.

"leaving

no trace at all....."

Simple. Pains. Narration yet brief. Nice, Workscot. Only I expected elaboration on what "the" wound means as per the title.

I liked the below lines.
"leaving

a jagged scar
a distant memory
no trace at all"
I agree with the logic of the words. Love can leave open wounds and forever memories. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
