Shadows in poetic recess

The pain sears,
the anguish rips the soul,
it need be shut away
quickly.
And that's that.
Carelessly it is buried.
Today, to breathe,
to exist without this pain
is all that matters.

But a shallow grave means that
simply the tug of a heart string
a stirring in the breeze
a song in the wind
and there it is again
painfully impeding
all forward momentum is lost,
and I sit, tearfully,
bleeding all over again.

But what if one day
I want to take one out
and embrace it
hold it close and drink its essence
learn from my pain and
write on my heart
all that is important
and all that is not?

I have found that memories
need be cared for properly,
examined and mended
the tears worked over,
with thought filled stitches
and then carefully,
in poetic form, saved away.

A slice of time
a version of the pain,
saved, unchanged, for future reference.
For when the wound is deep
the mind in an effort to
paint the past pretty,
can deceive.

I have discovered that I care
for my poetic recesses dearly
for you see...
I learned the hard way.

Well done, Lovey... No matter how deeply our memories are buried, they'll come out and visit us again in their own time... Poetic slices of time at least give us the control of when we want to give those memories life. And sometimes our words even touch and help another. *S*

Don't we all!
But hard earned lessons are the ones that stick with us the best!

Great job!
