Trying to forget… – by Estrella Azul

Flashbacks of darkness,
harsh words, a confrontation,
a worried stranger
holding your hand
on a cold hospital bed…

And then you’re back;
gazing into the mirror.

From the edge of sight
becoming aware of them,
you sorrowfully look down.
Recognize the five scars? 
Marks from two years before?

Even if you are willing…
they won’t ever allow you – to forget.
