Scar of Misunderstandings



The crimson scar 
Of profound misunderstandings
Languish in their hearts;
Yet the stench 
Of longing
Refuses to fade.

The tiny nick
Formed by his venomous words and her cold silence
Could be stitched;
But their ignorance
Of sorts
Turned the nick into a dark pit.

The beautiful, lush garden
Of their rosy love
Is now overgrown with weeds;
Yet their vows
Of togetherness
Resonates at every full moon night.

The poem is written for Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Weeds/ Weediness

    1. I totally agree, Lata.
      People must try to talk out with each other whenever there is a problem but unfortunately, most people hardly have time to do so.
