Daring Scars

I have never been in a painful passion
I’m yet to suffer a heartbreak
But still, I want to feel it in a poem
I still want to experience it in a fantasized epic
I want to portrait the painful moment
In a short sonnet of emotional depression
I desire to perceive the flowing sound of tears
Flowing from a bleeding heart
Whose lying down in unexotic pieces
I want to witness men perjured oneself
Memories being stimulated into amnesia
Smiles turning into scars
Waiting for a chivalrous healing
The remedy of all daring scars
