do rainbows have shadows?

time heals, they said

all wounds, conveniently

no mention, of the scars

that remain, the dreams

where he, kisses me

and remains, like the scars

antagonizing, lingering

aching, as they age

laughing, as they linger

are we actually healed

if we are haunted?

if rainbows

have shadows

do scars have

silver linings?

  1. A metaphor of high imagery that I have not read in a long time. This is one of my favorite poems of this year. Why? Because the title caught my eyes and your words pulled me into your world of rainbows having their own shadow within them.

    I’d say this is poem has stunning visuals and you’ve made my day. Thank you. 🙂
