Scarred for Life

My Broken Heart

Your ill-treatment will

leave my love severed;

it is a mark I will carry

on my heart forever.

Though the wounds

heal, the scabs remain

as a permanent reminder

of what I overcame.

Your abusive behavior

left my skin scarred;

from now on my future

will be eternally marred.
