Love Reborn

cleared from tears
a face reborn
blossomed beauty
nineteen again

I remember
when your smile
my world

how every moment
was a picture
now every kiss
a memory



years passed
I can’t let go
of the demon unleashed
with every verbal assault
beat you down to tears
feeling my worse fear

I hurt myself to taste
the pain I caused
a shooting star
across the sky
won’t place me back
in a heart buried
in ice
but a blade deep
will scream I’m sorry
