Deep Wounds

Deep Wounds

A Poem by Lisa C
"

Some Memories cause pain always

"

The promise of tomorrow
became a fancy of today
an illusion, dissolving
into thin air before my very eyes
the trace of a memory
still lingered on
clinging to my mind

I try to forget but those
claws tear, talons slice
leaving gaping gashes
as I rip it brutally
from it’s hiding place
leaving wounds forever more

those scars run so deep
and the memories still remain
winding deeper into my mind
I pull harder dragging those
dark memories thread by thread
but they don’t come quietly
shredding my thoughts
splintering my soul

A trace left behind
leaves me shaken
I feel freer some how, as though
the dark shadow has been
banished,conquered
finally defeated

better memories fill my mind
happiness and laughter
love and light
flooding in ,filling me
with wonder

those darker memories
just a shadow
still there buried deep
if I close my eyes
i see them at the
edges of my mind
wisps in the darkness
locked behind a door

Maybe you're not old enuf yet. All my life, I also felt that certain memories would always bite me hard, but then I finally got old & I don't have the capacity to give a crap about stuff like this anymore. That's the real blessing of old age! But your writing conveys the intensity of pre-mellow days (((HUGS)))

You are welcome dear Lisa.
As a person who is haunted by such dark memories I found this incredible poem very relatable. It speaks of my suffering and how these elusive ghosts will always be there at the edges of my heart. Thank you Lisa for sharing your work with us.
