The Fall

The fall was inevitable

No way to remain unscathed

When all that is solid gives way

Gravity is bloodthirsty in its domain

 

Bruised by Fate’s reminder

Denial becomes an ineffective band-aid

Flesh wounds heal, emotional scars fester

The cure remains a confession away

 

Wrap me with forgiveness

A balm undeserved, a promise unwound

A healer’s curse to banish the tears

I accept my destiny, blissful agony

Inspiration comes in many forms.  The one for this piece actually came from a nasty tumble I took yesterday.  I wrote to try to ease the pain.  It was a reminder that physical injury heals so much quicker than internal pain.

  1. I like that you found inspiration, just hate how that inspiration came to you. Hope you are healing from the fall and aren’t too sore.
