They say time will heal

the pain of shattered pieces.

I am still waiting.

 

The nagging needing of my heart,

tired of pointless bleeding.

They said time would heal!

 

Time paints an illusion of peace

and covers the pieces.

For healing, I am still waiting

 

The wound seemed healed

but the pain is only sealed

but they said, time will heal!

 

I am content, and then memory flashes

wound breaks, sudden sadness lashes

and here I am still waiting.

 

Do they understand?

Can they feel what I feel?

They say time will heal

Why I am still waiting?
