Heal

.

To sense a cut sealing

or a burn that scabs and breaks

is a corridor to what the soul

does when faith is a question

and the future is obscure. First,

you have to believe in souls.

.

To live in the seconds

watching a hole in the skin

go bloodless teaches the lessons

of life's semi-impermeabilities.

.

To exist as a wholeness

in health as unquestioned

belief in all that is seeable,

wonderfully unseen, or

absolutely unknowable

as the ultimate bandage.

.

We rip and tear and scar

and burn and scrape off layers

of skin, then heal. That

is all we dare do.

Almost

did not use the word semi-impermeabilities: but it was just too much fun. Thanks for your kind comment - Lady A -

a pain every second

what ever remain from a scar or burn

is not what our skin gain

but the endless feeling

of that pain

Skin

 

Skin maintains a scar

once a sharp point pierces

but it heals in time

and will not usually kill

you.

.

to feel pain is a blessing

that allows painlessness

to give over to happiness

and mirth. Pain free

is the prefernce, but then

how will you learn the tenants

of carefulness?

.

That said, avoid sharp blades

which slice and make you bleed.

Who knows what's on the tip

or where it has been?
