She got her scar from a survived suicide attempt.
He was supposed to jump with her but he was afraid to die.
He watched her fall and didn't reach to help.
He walked away leaving her for dead.
But she lived
Damaged, scarred, hesitant,
And even more she understood;
Up goes down, right goes left.
In and out, opposites and parallels.
Death tasted cold and bitter.
Life warm and sweet.
Light birthed from the pit of Darkness.
And Darkness was precious because of it.
She embraced it all.
She had no fear.
