How can I hold him

A long lost lover

Still under my skin

A devil at heart

Returned to haunt

And seduce me

With passions

And desires


Old embers

Into a fire

Now raging

In my soul

How can I hold him

While I still love u

His nothing like u

Ur so loving and kind

And done nothing wrong

It would be heartless and cruel

For me

To let u go

And to choose


It would be so difficult

For me to tell u about him

And what I’ve done

When I want to let

Him go

I know i will carry

The scars of his fire

In my soul


But I will suffer

With the regret

And pain

In silence

No words

Will ever

Be spoken

    Another beautiful & deep poem….carrying the scars (my scars) tell me to make some changes in my life….so I can bear those scars without giving too much attention….they are with me….though I’m moving steadily

      Thank u dear Navin. I find as humans that we all carry scars of some sort. If we can just understand our own we can help ourselves become stronger. Even through fiction.

    Having a current love but still having the ex tattooed on your arm, though you can have it removed the scar will still remain and there will be a story behind it.๐ŸŒน. Some feel that things donโ€™t need to be broken to get fixed, those people never made an omelet. The heart is the same, it must be broken to be opened and only then can the scars be carried with strength to move on. A lovely post by two talented people!!๐ŸŒน

        All in due time scars heal with the help from the mind and the seeking among good souls.๐ŸŒน. Chuck is a great soul.

        I am just going to leave it alone. It has been bruised, tortured, ignored, stomped on, abused and anything else negative u can think of. Friends like Chuck make me smile ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Sometimes thats all one needs in a day. I can’t depend on it daily so I must look for other things that turn my frown upside down๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank u forvur insight. Much appreciated and I’m happy to have stumbled across a kind soul as urself. Thank u Roy๐Ÿงžโ€โ™€๏ธ

        I hear you lovely, stepped on, picked on, put down, beat up, and let down. But if you can write it, in spite of it…youโ€™ve already got past it. Thereโ€™s always a rainbow after the storm and that goes for people too, those special ones serve as our sunshine. ๐Ÿ˜Š. Continue being a spirited soul.
