Poetry: “Wounds”

A little thing about time and healing, and wounds of the soul.

***~***~***~***

Wounds

Time heals all wounds
Except the ones that don’t
Merely gives the impression
Of closed flesh
Delicate scar tissue
Until the reminders
That trigger the degeneration
Splitting ancient sutures
That you forgot were there
Letting loose a flood
Of gushing memories
Traumatic moments
Or bittersweet times
Both causing pain to throb
Crippling for a moment
Or an hour
Or longer
Then the wound might close anew
Settle down into smooth flesh
And you hope it remains so
