    harsh words uttered forth
    pain from things said
    cannot be retracted
    scars on the inside cannot be seen
    they cut just as deeply as a physical blow
    outside wounds heal
    many times inside wounds do not
    and because i understand
    that you have difficulty
    controlling your words
    i forgive and i forgive and
    through time i try to teach you
    how to be calm and
    through time i realize that
    i have scar tissue of my own
    it needs healing and i pray for that healing
    i follow God because he will lead me
    then i can lead us
    to healing and living without
    harsh words but
    until then when you come to me
    in the physical i am
    locked up and turned off
    my scars are thick and even tho i still love
    i hurt and i try to relax from the verbal blows
    but i cannot and you notice
    and you ask why but...i have few words
    i cannot describe without sounding blameful
    or hurtful, so i pray and say don't worry
    but i wonder if the scars are now too thick
    and i pray that they are not...because
    inbetween the words
    i still hear your love for me

    Queen,

    Nice piece. I feel and hear your message. This is deep. At times I think we all develop some scar tissue, we just pray to God that everything will be alright. Priceless piece. Keep scribing queen.

    blak

    I can hear you saying please don't hurt me, those internal scars can spread like vines. I felt this one intensely.

    what u express here is indeed deep emotions
    of wordz that cut like a razor and leave a womb
    wide open where the healing and mending takes
    longer then a blow to the head
    i feel u and the heart that bring forth this scribe ....
    well felt
