Yesterday's Sorrows.

Scars, torn from the cuts of years

burn across your cheeks

rip tracks across the skin, carving

their memorial with falling tears.

Unquiet souls no peace to win

with wounds that seek the blood

of sorrows. No future step that can

begin when bound in heart

to lost tomorrows.
