“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.” -James Dean
"You can say whatever you want about me, but I am the only one that knows the truth"

I took my broken heart
And sewed it back together
With thread strong as steel
But light as a feather

I found all my scars
And erased them away
With the hope of finding
True love one day

I picked up my bones
And resembled them into
A stronger and more confident woman
Who is not afraid of you

I put my hand over my chest
Where the gap used to be
But when I took my hand away
There was nothing for me to see

I rewired my brain
To forget all of those memories
That I once cherished
Of you and me

I changed my body
And my mind too
So I wouldn’t have anything
That reminded me of you

I took the hits
I took the pain
Believe me when I say,
“You’ll never hurt me again.”

Don’t come around and say you’re sorry
I no longer care about how you feel
Please just give me some space
Because I’m finally starting to heal

The author's comments:
This is a companion/sequel to my other poem Broken (http://www.teenink.com/poetry/ballad/article/275621/Broken/). I recommend reading Broken first because this a poem based on the same structure in writing and will easily flow. Enjoy!
