The Wounds of Anothers Blade

Following my poetry collection theme, a love story, for the Brit Writers Award, I had to have a fireworks show. The boy and girl must fall out before the end. This seemed simple enough. However, my heroine didn’t have a reason to mistrust what she was feeling and my hero didn’t have a purpose to walk away. 

The Wounds of Another’s Blade became the heroines story of pain. The anguish over questions left unanswered. The hurt she feels from the lies told by the one she loves. Staying with the idea of a love story, I wrote this poem for the heroine only. It became the first poem in the story and is followed by … Opposites Attract
