Bandaged Heart (Yes, this is about you)

A wound,

seems like forever

before it leaves a scar behind.

The bandage,

is more like a blindfold in the way

it temporarily makes one go blind,

to the gaping hole of its existence.

I am the bandage

to a wound that I had not caused.

I don’t want to be this tie

that binds your broken pieces together.

I only want to see you whole again,

and if that means without me,

I will be happy for you,

but sad for me.
