Physical injuries warrant attention. 

They are clearly there 

Visible to all.

The bruises 

The bandages 

They are battle wounds 

Of mistaken moments.

Emotional injuries do not leave a trace 

They hide and are elusive.

Leaving you struggling

Without anyone knowing

And easily linger longer than any physical injury. 

Sometimes I wish emotional injuries left bruises.
