Free Verse, Poetry by Sarah

Scar Tissue

With birds I’ll share this lonely view.
From my perch above, I look upon you.

My heart aches, way up here in the air,
As you’re carried away by your own affair.

A presence unnoticed in your busy life,
It’s hard to believe you were once my wife.

Surface wounds may heal but underneath,
Forms scar tissue that time can’t beat.

Your focus is bound to earthly things,
But I have evolved and grown my wings.

The birds have shown me how to fly.
My eyes turn skyward, and I say goodbye.

As Autumn’s sweet leaves begin to fall,
I’ll make it to the moon, if I have to crawl.
