regret, perhaps

there are wounds
in your old soul
deeper than word-scars
trolling your mind

words spoken
hidden or feigned
words soaked in-
to your fragile heart

those penned
or not. razor-sharp
tracks that left only shards
of who you once were

or could have become.

Written and linked to dVerse Quadrille, a poem of exactly 44 words that include the word SCAR.

    “word-scars” is fantastic. Sometimes we utter them ourselves. Beautifully done, Victoria.

    I think we all have a lot of razor-sharp word-scars from our pasts.
