Remaining

Not all wounds
Are healed by time
Only deepening
The pain becomes greater
A drop of blood growing into
A steady drip
Falling from my chest
Darkening the ground beneath my feet

Not all words
Are forgotten in time
Remaining always when the thought
Of you arrives
Causing hurt that is accompanied
By a physical pang
As I clutch my chest
Trying to hold it all inside
Never will it fade
Away
