You came and went like a shooting star, leaving no trail
      except a scar.

As you fall
I age
Every second
a heartache
Every minute
a scar
Every hour
an injury
As you fall
I go back
To the sacrificed smile
And the everlasting pain
As you fall
I appear
I find me
then not.
I disappear.

i was holding the rifle
the way i was holding your hands ,

and they were still hot —  

so hot that
now
we are calloused ,
-
love beat me
and then i beat you —

our
hands were burned together .
.
but you smiled ,
                           and
i was the one who cried
                                         instead.

one day, someone will kiss
my scars .

someone should kiss yours, too.

the recoil will always sting ,
and i will always
bruise.
.
BIG FUCKING S/O TO MY EX!! he’s been so fucking kind to me and deserves so much in life. It sucks that I can’t give it to him but he’s one of the kindest people I know. I was snooping through my friends blog and I found her poetry, and got The title from a line I read in one of them. I love that friend too!

I remember telling you,
I’m bittersweet.

My delightful laugh,
A saccharine smile, unforgettable.

My painful cry, causing distress.
Leaving a cicatrix in your mind.

the blackest abyss brooding,
dark and foreboding,
scarred memories sewn
into every fibre of your being.
A dangerous plan, just this time.
A strangers hand, Clutched in mine.
I'll take this chance, so call me blind.
I've been waiting, all my life.
Please don't scar, this young heart.
Just take my hand.
I was made for loving you.
Even though we maybe,
hopeless hearts just passing through.
Every bone screaming.
I don't know what we should do.
All I know is darling, I was made for loving you.
Hold me close, through the night.
Don't let me go, we'll be alright.
Touch my soul, and hold it tight.
I've been waiting, all my life.
I won't scar, your young heart.
Just take my hand.
'Cause I was made for loving you.
Even though we maybe,
hopeless hearts just passing through.
Every bone screaming,
I don't know what we should do.
All I know is darling, I was made for loving you.

Love is like fire
It warms up in colder times
But if you play too much with the fire
you will burn through the flames
And there will be scars left on the heart.
Be gentle

your scars -  a road map;
sad, endless tales spreading far
of battles once fought.
Ella Salvador May 17
Someone said he loves you and you believed each word
Your first kiss made you dance and spin around the stars

You swore you would marry him
someday..
You have done almost everything
For the man
That had a change of heart
For the man
Who changed his mind..

Young girl at 23
You have so much to learn
You have so much love to give
Know that in life
You will still have greater things
You will still have greater dreams in mind

Continue walking
Open each doors
Let life surprise you
You will soon find out who are you supposed to be

For now
Take a deep breath
Count to 10
Feel the pain
It means you are living
Cry. Take it in.
Let your heart
So innocent be scarred
To be stronger than what you have been
It will be alright
This is life
Hold on tight
And learn from each mistakes

Mental illness is rising
Psychologists' career are blooming
Social media is redefining
Making it a beautiful suffering

Sadness has become boring
Misery has become enchanting
Scar has become beauty
Grief has become engaging
Depression has become alluring

Emotions have become art
Heartbreak has become a heart-wrenching song
Pain has become poetry
and mental illness has become a edgy-trending label.

When did they start to disguise agony behind such beauty?
