Underneath Stitches Are Scars

Underneath Stitches Are Scars

A Poem by imagination101



















Stitches blanket a torn body

A tapestry of wounds inflicted by life

Each illustrates a story of suffering

Crimson blood pools in inflamation


Lying words  of love

Never spoken in truth

Heart needs mainteance

Repair is nonexistence


Deception of beauty resonates inside

a cinderella's mind

Mirror mirror on the wall

Whose the prettiest one of all

Mimicks a dying soul

Crown of self respect tarnish,

falls like blacken ashes


Abuse covers her in blue

Tempestuous hands

Smoldering anger

Cuts to the core

She is broken, bleeding and alone


Betrayal of FAMILY, FRIENDS, the WORLD

Traps her in a web of repugnance

Looks upon her as nonentity

A person that should never have been born


Her heart is opened

A sign want you be mine visible

to all that will read

Stitches embroidery her exterior

Underneath scars that band her from healing

The picture you chose for this write fits it perfectly, this reminds me of someone who has been abused physically by someone in her life, very well choice of words.. Hiding behind the pain inflicted by the ones around her.. This was a wonderful write :)

In many ways, we are all a stitch-work of sorts. Some of our pieces were sewn in by design, while others are repairs.

Im not sure what you where thinking, but whatever it was you conveyed a since of utter depression to me. Very dark a picture of the starckness of a painful life. Very Nice.
