Nursing Wounds

The fire burned
from the inside out
and we chased the sensations
it left
licking our lips
from the burn
we loved the way it hurt
an addiction to the wound
that we repeatedly nursed
then re-opened
the seared edges
to watch everything melt away
inside the lie we called our life

  1. Love hurts
    every time we fix a broken heart
    meant a worn down soul
    we seek what makes us feel

    Isn’t this a masochistic way of living we do!
    Great piece of writing.

    Mind checking my frozen heart heart today in today’s piece, “Please Listen!”
