Scars Deeply Unseen [until It's Too Late] - Poem by Liz Munro

How can we say such words
if we don't really mean them?

Sorry -
When it's too late -
is it because your soul feels guilty
and you're left consumed with self-hate?

I love you -
because you're too scared to be alone?
when it's only words without true emotion
it is worse deception
as it cuts through the bone.

If you came here
with false words and lies
saying words you didn't really mean,
then you realise -
too late -
that your lies hurt worse then the truth,
because for many
those scars lie deeply unseen -
on the soul...

...until it's too late and they're gone.
