Yet Again... - Poem by Rick Elpers

Maybe if I fell from the sky
The pain would be acceptable
Maybe if I'd been run over
I'd be still able to walk
But the arrows that kill
Even the strongest men
Cut through the heart
Far deeper than physical injury
Are the words of a lovers confession
Of a new amor
Leaving wounds that need time
To heal over the layers
Of past losses
Burying me
Alive
