I Found A Poem

In the recesses of my documents saved on my laptop, I discovered this bit of writing. It doesn’t have a title, but if it did, it just might be called “Sorrow.”
I’m not sharing this poem now because I am feeling particularly sorrowful, I just thought it actually sounded kind of nice.

It’s not every day you come across old writing that’s not horrible!

Well, maybe my poetry class next semester will be the true judge of that….



Time doesn’t heal

Open wounds

Scaled over

By scars


To the touch

Of words



From the pain


The brain




To feel again


Though empty

Full of memory

Of times


Glistening eyes

No amount

Of silence

Can disguise


We exist on


Of past time

Of how we

Pass time

We carry on


For our journey


We will never

Be the same

You and I

We will never

Cease to cry


But smile

Teary eyed

At the ones

We have left

To love
