Posted to Action Poetry

Once your poison tipped words pierced my skin
And all the love bled out through the holes like
Red stars in a white sky

The savage spears landed in my heart and
Stuck there
porupined forever

Time has passed
And your barbs are blunt
They bounce off my skin
It is too hard for them to penetrate
the scarred heart within.
