    *Sexual Assault Trigger Warning read at your own risk*

    "Aren't you afraid to let them show"
    What's there to be terrified of
    Each crack in my foundation
    Contains a different story of my life

    Hidden deep in this jagged line
    Lies my sobbing childhood
    Poisoned by dads draped in Captain Morgans and fierce anger
    Tainted by Epstein creeps and Barbie perfect bullies

    Here within this gaping one
    Lies my traumatized 2016 Summer
    Tormented by an ex who didn't care for the meaning of "no"
    Haunted by a first true friend taken too soon

    The final one I'll dare to present
    Lies grieving countless years wasted on a first love decieving Prince Charming
    Confused by Sour Patch Kid words
    Torn apart by sweet and sour memories

    So you see
    I'm not ashamed of these imperfections marring my heart
    Each contributed into the shaping of me
    Creating a warrior, a true survivor

    Scars of my life

    Confused by Sour Patch Kid words
    Torn apart by sweet and sour memories

    Fog

    In the morning
    Out the windows
    The eyes searched for a visible soul
    But the heavy fog hid everything
    The branches that knocked the windows
    Were not there anymore
    Hands reached out
    To feel the prickly branches
    In the cold foggy winter
    And blind hands
    Spilled blood on the hard ground
    By being pricked by the branches

    How blind
    Did the fog make me
    How did my mind fool me
    Into thinking I knew where it would be
    Like the back of my hand

    Oh! What a joke this has been
    Because right outside the window
    Was where I was betrayed
    By my thoughts of assumed familiarity

    Again, what a joke am I...
    To be fooled by my mind
    That's clouded in trust and faith
    On others

    What a joke I have become
    To be betrayed by my mind
    Into trusting those who are no good
    When the pain is very obvious
    And my screams so loud
    That my mind hurts
    Does the fog of trust and faith
    Fly away

    What use is the sun
    To shine on my pain
    When its obvious
    That my trust had been broken
    And the thread of faith
    Between all of us
    Has snapped

    What use is the sun's warmth
    That did not shine
    On the fog
    Clouding my mind

    Oh! What a joke I am
    To drive in this thick fog
    Despite the multiple warnings of accidents
    The thick fog of trust
    That is the reason for the scars
    That decorate my arms and legs
    No, they are not battle scars
    They are scars to hide the pain
    Of the accident
    In the thick fog
    They are there to hide
    The irrational pain
    Of betrayal and of snapped threads

    Oh! What a joke I have become
    To be blinded by the fog of trust

    Scars:
    A mere prelude to dawn.
    Filled my mind with dreams,
    As easy as it seems,
    It's still prolonged.

    Scars:
    Filled my head with dreads.
    And my heart with love I dare not cred.
    Mum, I'm ironically dead.
    Keep sending me prayers,
    For I'm filled with scars.

    Halfhealed scars came along with dusty winds...

    The halfhealed scars came...
    From her writings...
    That fear for loosing me...
    Came across along with dusty wind...
    Those fairy touch of her lips...
    I knew, self love won't let her bloom...

    Soul Sister

    dancing under a thousand tiny scars
    is an agile little soul sister
    culling the transformed hope
    with wounds laid bare.

    trailing across the barren lands,
    scars dripping vermilion
    as it rebuilds the earth underneath,
    our soul sister, might in lithe.

    dying under burdensome weights,
    our little soul sister beams
    radiance and mirth
    for God’s ways are mysterious.

    Some wounds just
    won't stop Bleeding

    Dear someone I love,
    I was content with what I had, and you walk in out of the blue. I either knew you for so long, or sometimes met you on the spot. In every case I be nice, and at times even fake a smile. Then one day I notice you sigh, I make all attempts to keep your morale high. That is where we beign to bond, I remove the mask I always put on. There you begin to see my scars, help me heal them under your tutelage. Then I begin to count on you, with laughs and tears and scandals. One fine day, you have a choice, of someone, something or some place nice. You break the heart that was on my sleeve, leaving me quizzing my self worth. And in that moment I realise, you were not someone I love, you were just everyone I loved. A friend, family, a relative or someone. You're not a person no more, you're just a pattern I dote on.

    The sky is dotted
    The moon bleeds
    What an exquisite night,
    What a beautiful tragedy,
    I gather the moon in my arms,
    And its scars sing to me,
    Those without light,
    Aren't without hope,
    Broken hearts somehow,
    Have spaces to hold dreams
    And from scars, verses spill
    Out, like rivers of poetry,
    There is magic in the mundane,
    And when you have to look for it,
    Close your eyes to the world,
    Darling you will find it within.

    The feeling of not leaving the bed,
    Is a wish to be bedridden,
    For I seem to wonder,
    Why when you are struggling
    With the world collapsing all around the planet,
    Your mind recites how to hang the heart whereas the body has this urge to keep living ?

    You fell in love with him because his scars looked alike to the ones you had. But my dear, the reasons for his wounds were very different from yours. And the way he healed was very different from how you healed.

    Get a life!!

    I went for a drive today. Alone. Nothing but the noises of the horns and the people around me accompanying me as I drove through the endless road, which didn't seem to stop somewhere. It felt as if I was at peace, away from my thoughts, almost getting numbed, but completely focused on the driving and the air that touched me, which felt like a feather as I kept going. It was as if I was away from the chaos of the notifications and the people with whom I talked daily. The only difference was that my instinct didn't force me to reply them because I wasn't just surviving, but I was living the present. I wasn't wholly cut off from the world, but I knew I must get a life—a life where I will be important and won't feel afraid of getting isolated. A life where I won't cry when I realise that I would be left alone at any turn of my life. Maybe the scars have not healed yet, but when will they heal if I can't even decide what I want, and what makes me happy. For how long will I think of someone else's happiness and keep making the sacrifices? Doesn't it hurt to get buried alive? Maybe this is the time to cut off all the toxicity by choice. Not for them, but for myself - to get a life I will love to live!

    These ain't just the scars on my soul,
    These are the medals life gave me for the battles I bravely fought!
    I could ever manage to come this far,
    Nobody had ever thought.
    But maybe God knew my mission was still pending,
    For which on this Earth I was brought! -Kps©2021

    The evolution of pain

    The last thing that attempted
    to destroy me
    Must have
    Feared my strength
    Cause
    It unexpectedly run off
    leaving behind scars
    &
    How I'm so certain that it was my strength that was feared
    Cause
    With psychological bruises
    &
    Emotional scars
    day by day
    Bit by bit
    I'm still going

    in Love with my Scars

    What are scars?
    Nothing but kisses
    left by bravery
    with of scent
    of boundless love.

    Today my ears
    sat beside those scars
    that unfold some poetries,
    listening the stories
    narrating how strong I was,
    embracing the life
    decorated with thorns
    and my bruises blooming rose.
    .
    What are scars?
    The pleasant dirge
    carved on vellum.
    .
    Today my eyes
    set on those scars,
    those scars
    that opens up me
    and those who tried
    to shut me up.
    Seeing those words
    that pierced me,
    introducing me to metaphors of life.
    Yet found my home
    in Imagery
    reading bruises
    writing verses
    on parchment of this skin.
    .
    What are scars?
    Small windows
    from where my soul chant.
    .
    Today my heart fall
    in Love with my Scars
    that accepts
    the most of me the most.
    Those scars which painted
    the hushed pale
    into the dancing colors.
    Contusion
    that defines the beautiful me
    that seperate me from the rest
    that cherished the bruised me.

    What are scars?
    I asked again
    Love that I found on myself.

    The other thing about love

    We all want that love that comes really easily
    you forget how people have scars
    how they ache, how about the pain
    what about healing

    How about conquering the battles with them
    reminding them they are not alone
    that they are worth the fight
    that no matter what comes your way
    you are going to be there
    what about actions speak louder than words
    what about efforts my love

    We all want that love that comes easily
    But the other thing about love is
    It's not meant to hurt
    it's meant to be fought for
    it's about trials
    it's about showing up for the one
    no matter how low it gets
    How terrible and painful it gets
    Even if it is dirty
    Even when there are tears
    the thing about love is
    Protect the heart of the other
    even when they don't let you in
    I promise when they do, it will all be worth it

    The other thing about love is
    not killing them, not holding them to open up just for you but you Heal them for themselves, that whether they choose you or not,
    let that heart heal

    Scars

    Some Words cut deep like a knife, twisted onto your heart..
    When you feel your chest squeezed painfully..
    Our brain can't seem to figure out how to make the pain go away
    So we clench our hands to our hearts hoping to protect it...
    It feels worse when it's from someone whom you trust...
    You can see a physical knife coming but an emotional one comes at the most unexpected times...
