’ve been told all my life that “time heals all wounds”
but that is not true.
the wound of losing you is still there
no matter how many minutes, hours, days, months, or years passes by.
the open bleeding wound stops bleeding after a while
then it closes over and turns into a scar.
but this scar is with me forever.
the wound is still there just closed over, forgotten about,
losing you has become less important over time.
but the pain of hearing the words, “I don’t love you anymore”
will always be with me,
it does not matter if I am a minute older or 70 years older
I will always feel the pain from hearing those words spill off your tongue.
I remember how rehearsed they sounded, like you had practiced them,
you made it seem like no big deal that you had my heart but i did not have yours,
and unfortunately that pain has not gone away
it has been a long time since I heard those words pour out of your mouth
the same mouth that kissed me with so much passion that it gave me life,
the same mouth that made me feel a love so warm that I thought my body would combust from the inside out
the same mouth that told me things sweeter than pure sugar
the same mouth that told me you would always be here for me
the same mouth i now despise, for love was not on your lips but poison
you built me up only to tear me down
you gained the light in my eyes
the love in my heart
and the innocence i had before you came
Time has not made this hurt any less
for i am constantly reminded of how you never truly loved me
and because of you I know that time heals nothing.
