About the Poem

Sometimes the ones who should love us, hurt us instead.

Residue

Broken tooth
From fist once loved
Scars in unseen ways.

Trust betrayed
Inflicted harm
Lost in emotions maze

Respect denied
Flows both ways
Diminishing esteem.

Sadness seeps
To aching marrow
Laughs a far off dream

Soul deep anger
Smoulders darkly
Sustaining life long pain

Time groans on
Fades memory
Deep wounds, though,

Still remain.
