Healing Means W[hole]

Post by Sierra » September 28th, 2004, 1:57 pm

Healing means whole
adding up to regular prime {‘}
sealed with kisses,
blisters [packed]
into parched mouths,
reigns into stolen slays {sleighs}
somewhere there is a child crying
with no one to hold it.

but learning to let go
means healing, means whole—
some day, babe, things will heal
where will all the slippery banana peels
go to hide?
without a desperate last minute
act to perform, where’s the audience?

Two cries can become sighs
long forgotten or missed begotten,
relational triangles always forming
but there’s no
repeat show.

Time moves on and
massacres everything in
wonton sorrow.

Healing means [w]hole.
But not all.

time moves on and massacres everything....

destruction before creation....
hang onto form last and be denied form next
(easier said than done, it would seem)

you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs....

A cry from the heart watching a child self destruct and being unable to do anything to help.

Broken eggs is a very good metaphor! But in this case, maybe humpty dumpty can put himself back together.
