i awake alone at night screaming in the darkness

I hold myself close

telling my self that it will soon be better

I cry and sob  because of the pain and fear

the pain of a loss…and the fear of more pain.

They tell me “you’ll be fine”, “time heals all wounds”

little do they know…that is far from the truth.

Time does not heal all wounds

because we are left with scars

those scars never heal and often become new wounds.

So don’t tell me things will be okay

that all my pain will subside …that the fear is only in my head.

Don’t tell me that, because i will prove you wrong
