Trying to Forget

-Eyes of a thousand emotions,

unable to hide these painful notions-

-Beauty hides the ugly scars,

placing the wounds behind bars-

-Memories of him setting them free,

the love grew and was cut away like branches on a tree-

-Smiles can only hide so much,

as soft hands cling to his picture yearning for his touch.-

-True feelings being reflected in her eyes,

as pain grows and love abruptly dies.-

-Time will mend the wounds on her heart,

yet the scars will forever remain never to part.-

-She will learn to love again,

but will be shy because of where she has been.-

-The past protecting her from any other,

her future unharmed by another.-

-Yet as the present slowly takes hold,

her insecurities continue to mold.-
