Aftermath - Poem by Arik Fletcher

Feel the scars upon my skin,
Keep me from what could have been,
Save me from this dark embrace,
Find the steps I can’t retrace.

Clear the cold mist from my eyes,
Help me see through this disguise,
Wipe the cobwebs from my mind,
Guide me to what I can’t find.

Take me far away from here,
Separate me from my fear,
Keep my heart safe from it all,
Catch me now before I fall.

    I like the way you expressed the pain in this poem. It made us feel it all too; as we can relate to it in our lives. Well done.
