Little Reminders

Scars leave reminders
of the incomplete

In scars, memory
can be large or
it’s reflection slight

You can trivialize the
role it plays when speaking
to friends or strays

But you can’t ignore it’s
importance, and the way
it’s image shapes the day

Tiny fragment
of what might have been

Broken tip
of the arrow sent

Try to drown
your ever sorrow
in pools so deep

and you’ll find
once dry
the first thing
you’ll see…
Is how large the scar seems to be


About hobgoblin2011

I'm a poet and aspiring screenwriter/songwriter with a passion for film, art, photography, philosophy and heavy metal. I love reading, mainly non-fiction, comic books, graphic novels, myth and reference. Family always comes first for me. I'm a proud father to two wonderful pups and two curious cats. I'm also a glutton for punishment aka the life of being a diehard Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan.

    Fantastic! I love the flow and rhyme here. These lines really speak to me:

    • Thanks, Steve. I’m really not sure how many of the pieces I put up here will go over, as for the most part, I’m going towards the more abstract/experimental route here. That and a bunch of songs. Thanks again
