Time Heals Bitter Scars - Poem by Gerry Legister
An expensive mistake
Betrays the cries of disbelief.
Sugar-coated love turns sour
Heartland tears pouring down the telephone.
No one really wants to hear the truth
Holding secure their own thought.
Turning away with minds already made up
Hiding their scars inside an envelope.
Because they have troubles of their own
Spreading like uncontrolled fires.
Medication place sympathy on the bruises
Consolidate twilight in the spring
Night mellow with unhappy dispute
Pain brings credibility ill repute.
The night is lonely with bizarre dreams
Awaken terrified and falling more unclean
Summer breeze conflicting in the wind
A melody played without string.
Your edgy thoughts hung bewildered
Life feels almost diminished
With regret and bitter scars showing
Your heart wants impatiently to love again
But the atmosphere brings reclusive pain.
