Mending

Mending

A Poem by Legolas
"

For a very dear and important friend of mine.

"
Thrashed, beaten, abused.
Hit, struck, battered.
Yet you still stand strong.
Your heart ripped to shreds.
Scarred for life.
Bruises and cuts heal with time.
Your emotional bruises won't.
All I hope is that they will fade.
I pray for you.
I pray that the hurt will go.
I pray that you someday be happy.
I pray that you will find some small measure of peace.
You have always been there for me.
Understanding, believing, trusting.
Helping, soothing, comforting.
I hope one day I will be able to do the same for you.
You are free now.
Free from the clutches of evil.
Free from the beast that haunts you.
Freed.
A wonderful life awaits you.
A loving and supporting spouse.
Children that look up to you for guidance.
A blooming and prosperous career. 
Do not lose hope, for you have hope now.
From the depths of darkness you have escaped.
Moving toward the light you so desperately seek. 
Climbing the stairs of recovery.
You are mending.
Mending with time.

Brilliant poem! Absolutely stunning, Legolas! I love the soft, caring tone of the persona throughout the poem, talking about the harsh and cruel reality. The contrast in it really creates a vibrant feeling. It is truly one of the best poems you could write about another person. The third stanza, which talks about praying for the other person, is my favourite. Such a kind and divine thing to do, mildly stating the fact that the persona is in the habit of praying(and probably loves god too). Great and powerful write! Keep writing!

Excellent poem. Though it begins with a deep darkness, you end it with a blazing beacon of light. And you call me a kinder person...

It's beautiful. You've filled this with your empathy, with your affection. With your caring. One day you should either read this to your friend or give them a copy. It would probably mean much to them to know how deeply you care, how you would change things for them if it was within your power.

You must have a strong blue side to you.

Well done.

Some of the deepest wounds can be self inflicting, I love the feeling of serene repair this poem gives me. We all heal in time.

I think you have great command of writing for a 15 year old!

My one suggestion: The lines that worked least well for me were "Bruises and cuts heal with time. / Your emotional bruises won't." I felt this because "bruise" is repeated twice, and also "emotional bruise" sounds superficial, shallow, when obviously you mean to refer to deep injury. So I would suggest "emotional wounds".

Thank you. I will look into changing that.
I'm sure your friend enjoys this. I would go on and on with adjectives to describe the poem, but Isabelle below has already done so. I enjoyed this.
