Bruised Memories

Bruised Memories by Katharine Dobbs

Bruises fade yet
the memory of the pain remains
Words wound yet
the sharp tongued cuts still bleed
Shadows lurk
in the dark recesses of my mind
Fear trespasses
anxiety eludes rectification
Trust wasted
lost and found undetected
Anger sent
but never received
Memories kept hidden
yet the future is unmarked
holding hope for those
that dare dream

Katharine was the student of the month in fourth grade:Β  she listed her favorite subject as “Spelling” and her something special as “I like to read.” Known by her friends as Katie, she resides in Oklahoma, where she is a boss lady in business by day and Mommy to a little boy by night.

She began to share her work on social media in November 2019 to push herself out of her introverted comfort zone. Her poetry is motivated by love, relationships, self-growth, ancestral trauma, the supernatural, hope, and the perseverance of those that face a resistant path on their self-journey to rise.

She continues to enjoy her fourth grade past times but also finds pleasure in writing, history, genealogy, collecting antique Wedgwood, laughing at Dad jokes, and daydreaming of life as a professional poet. Her passion for “Spelling” can be found on Instagram @theRootoftheRise
