The scars are still there
Although they have healed.
Shiny and white,
The scabs have all peeled.
The welts that were there
Have faded as though,
The skin has a mind
To forget what it knows.
But the heart is a camera,
It takes what it sees.
It cannot forget.
It won’t be relieved.
Vengance and hate
Are captured within
With no route for escape.
The heart will remember
And keep its affects
With tiny red fingers
That interlace and connect.
What does it want
With a past overcame,
And those sudden reminders
That fill us with shame?
The answer perhaps
Lies still in the heart:
To find a luminous life
One must know the dark.
Author's Notes: I wrote this poem a few years back when I was coming out of dark period. Maybe it will speak to someone who's doing the same.
