Cold Compressions

You tell me that…

My heart feels colder

Especially around the edges

That you can trace

The scars that she left on the walls.
It worries you

That the scars are too deep

For your fingers to break through

You tell me that my smile is broken

That my eyes are only half lit

That you're afraid

I forgot

The warmth

The desire

Of lover's eyes

I promise you

Although broken

I found all the pieces

I rebuilt myself of the best intentions

The willingness to light the flame

To spark it within my chest

Yearning for the excitement
That lovers dare risk

To give it all away

Entrusting everything

For one more chance

To find the meaning in Forever
