Scars by Avalone Rae

I gave myself scars by loving you,
Your skeptic waves washed over my shore,
Where I played for years and years,
You planted seeds of doubt,
Deep into the corners of my mind,
As I walked like a ghost in the background,
Always fading away into the crowd,
Afraid of having the spotlight on me,
Afraid of someone picking apart my flaws,
So I went to bed at nights,
Thinking I was so flawed,
Nobody could love me,
Because on most days,
All I felt was your coldness,
Cutting my self worth into shreds,
As I silently withdrew into my shell,
Hurting, swallowing your words,
Into the deepest parts of my mind,
That I am flawed and unlovable.

But in all my years with you,
I never knew love this hard,
When I can stand in front of the mirror,
Count all my scars and smile,
And I promise this time,
I won’t pick on my scars again,
I won’t let them bleed,
Because now,
I know I love myself so tenderly,
None of my lovers never could,
Someday there may be somebody,
Who could love me the way I do,
Who could love who they are like I do now,
Until then,
This is me and my scars.

I’m 21 and currently pursuing an education in the medical field. 

There’s nothing I love more than reading and writing.  Writing allows me to dive deep into my inner self and understand it in a way like a fog being cleared up in my head. It’s helped me become emotionally and mentally healthy as a person.

I find that words have so much power—they can heal you or break you. So I use writing as a way to heal my inner wounds and I also hope to help people out with theirs through my writing.
