I Found Love Itself

I have known firsthand-

What heartbreak,pain and disappointment feels like.

Oh we used to be bedfellows.

Growing up feeling unloved-

I searched for it in all the wrong places.

I look at myself and I see the scars from wounds-

Wounds that cut so deep its pain lingered for months.

The scars which show where I have been,

Where you picked me from,

Scars which brought tears to my eyes when I remember the past.

But I weep no more.

Oh no I don’t.

I rejoice.

Because through them I found You.

I found Love itself.
