Time Doesn’t Heal All Wounds (A Poem)

They say that time heals all wounds
But I know that’s not true
Some wounds are too deep to heal
Some scars are always in view

I loved you since we were kids
You were my cherry pie
But then you broke my heart in two
When you kissed that other guy

My mom tried to console me
She said it would get better
She said that time would make me forget
But I still remember every letter

Every letter you wrote to me
Every promise you made
Every song you sang to me
Every memory we shared

Time has passed and I’ve moved on
I’ve met someone new
But I still think of you sometimes
And wonder if you do too

Time doesn’t heal all wounds
It just makes them less raw
But some wounds never close up
And some scars never fade away

Based on an upcoming story by the author.

  1. There are wounds that never heal at all. You’ll just get used to the pain it caused. You’ll learn to live with it everyday. You’ll just learn how to guard it, protect it, so no one will get to hurt it more and worsen the pain it has already caused you.

    This is a great poem, Alex! It’s truly relatable for me.
