if time erodes pain
why then
does time
build
calcification
and stalagmites
and stalactites
why does time
raise from their graves
the new land drowned and reborn
why does time
etch hurt so deeply in frown
why does memory
deepen like a well sourced burn
why do my empty arms
catch in motion and fall
lost by my side
why if time erases me
in your heart and your mind
do I stand here
years from now
in similar light
with a chest full of hurt
not altered
not changed

  1. Perhaps because your ability to love is stronger and deeper! And you feel things more intensely!
    And your heart is bigger and more loving! Perhaps time holds these things to fine tune and teach you so that you can write such exquisite things! 🙂 <3

    1. Natalie I agree. Some people do have an ability to love very deeply though no easily or often if more than once. As such it is a little bit uneven or unequal if the other person does not have the capacity to do so.

      1. ”Tis so true my friend. My husband loves me. I’ve never doubted that but he is very limited in his ability to express it. But the fault lies with the damage his mother did to him and so I understand but I need more than he can give so yes there are inequalities. But there are other things to be considered and weighed which balanced it out somewhat. But I could never walk away from a basically good man who does love me, who takes good care of me in other ways, and who would never physically harm me. Life is hard and we don’t always get what we want. But at some point we have to realize when want we do have is so much more than others and so it is enough. 😊❤️

        1. That’s very honest and true. I think many times in relationships we would like total equality but it’s almost impossible, it is said one always loves the other most, though I have learned love takes many forms and sometimes the more verbalized is not as honest as the acted upon xo

  2. Wow. I cannot get enough. You are a beautiful human. Your soul walks in step with the human you present to others. It is simply a joy and a relief to meet one such as yourself. You are not disrupted by self-doubt. You are your pain. You are an immortal.
