Bittersweet

Photo by luizclas on
Leaves wither
then spring comes,
your tears dry
then salt lingers.
Do you have a heart
strong enough
to forget all the times
you were wronged
or do you still go back
to the bittersweet days?

To leave it all behind
you found yourself
running all the time,
the old scars were 
once fresh wounds.
Do you have a heart
hurt enough to hate
those who caused you pain
or do you still go down
the memory lane?

You said you never
needed a closure,
band-aids aided you
until they didn't.
Did you forgive
but didn't forget
felt your soul grieving
to make it right?

These days, the promise
to never look back
is broken every night
when the dessert
satisfies your sweet tooth
but the taste of memories
is always bittersweet.
