an empty cave (original poetry)

in poetry •  9 months ago 

Wounds heal leaving scars but we never forget how we got hurt...


    an empty cave

my chest
is an empty cave
nothing alive
there are signs
that life
once existed
but torture methods
were twisted
the story’s
told in scars
carved on walls
that will never
be revisited
