Upon the Soul



~~~

I know pain

We are old friends

I know rain

And the aches it sends

I have bled

The scars still remain

I’ve felt lead

Sent with an aim

I have broken

More bones than hearts

Ivory poking

Out of flesh torn apart

I know the chill

Skin and cold steel

Yet colder still

The pain I now feel

When a heart

Pierced by loving words

Now falls apart

When the silence heard

Nothing ruins

The body left whole

Than fatal wounds

Upon the soul

~~~

  1. The pain we feel that shows no outward scars is far deeper and longer-lasting than those which do heal, even if they leave scars behind.

    a broken heart is more difficult to deal with than a broken bone… beautifully said, Brad!

    Truly beautifully written. I guess sometimes even a very bad wound does heal but a truly broken heart may never mend. This is lovely Brad. ❤️🤗sending my love to you, Joni
