Overcoming the Weight of a Name

While names can trigger painful memories, they do not have to destroy us.

I was getting over you
and watching the scars fade
until I heard a singer with your name.
Then my sadness came flooding back.
I know, a name should just be a name.
But it reminded me of your words and your face.
