Over thinking

joanna scott 1967 (Birmingham)



Sleepless nights
and tired days
the lingering stench
of the bad old ways
Times change
the pain will stay the same
as you wear a million thoughts
that carry olden days shame
Tears not cried
there is no release
to fix the hurt
that does not cease
Time is the healer
like letting the tears flow
to heal the hurt
you think, will never go
