How do you know?

How do you know whether the scars are healed?

A little emotional, I feel upset so I thought I'd write some poems

How do you know

When you’re over the past?

Is it a sudden burst of happiness?

Or a cynicism, developing over time?


How do you know

If the wounds have healed?

When they aren’t physical

But embedded in your mind


How do you know

If the memories are accurate?

If your brain has distorted them?

To make it less painful


How do you know

That you won’t sink?

Into the blue kamikaze

That drowns the last breaths of hope

The End
