I need to stop using present tense
When that presence isn't there anymore
But it doesn't make sense
You were here before
But I'd be living in a lie if I said you were by my side
I'm beginning to reflect
And I felt like I almost died
Something so raw and sharp
Not arrows, not my heart
But my through my entire being the sharpness went
It tore through everything
And to this very day
I can still feel the sting.
They say things heal with time
Wounds close as the clock ticks
But the ticking goes on
The gauze won't stick
I know I've been here before
And I know I'll come back again
But I feel vulnerable here
Like my walls are paper thin.
But I make a facade like I'm over it, I'm fine
And you all believe me
Though I'm a fucking mess inside
And I swallow my pride when I see another romance
And hold back all my wants and needs
Because time hasn't healed anything yet
And this wound still bleeds.
Old poem that I felt needed to see the light of day
