Owl Poetry & Prose

Bleeding Days…

Some days the gut is just pulverized to a point where it’s wrenching

From the inside out. From the very depths of the soul

For it is heaving and griping in pain for what was and no longer is

Or can ever be

Never. Never was this feeling so bad

Yet it is what it is and in time or so we say, we heal and deal

Dealing does help heal but not always

The memories wisp through the mind and the tendrils just latch on

To the scars to the hurt and gouge out the very fragile little beating soul

Beating it a bit more almost in mockery

And some days that pain is not human but it never really was, was it?

It was metaphysical. It still is and it will always be

Or so it feels

On some days…
