A Wound that May Never Heal

Yahoo Image Search

(I’m in a poetic mood for this week.  Next week might start promoting War of Nytefall: Ravenous, so I’ll be rather whimsical for a bit.  Enjoy.  I think.  Shedding some heavy emotions here too.)

Time has passed
And the unseen wound remains
Not a gaping gash
Or a piercing hole
The edges have tried to meet
But never fully closing
Opinions always voiced
From those that may not know
Their pain is not my own
The taste is different
Cures are not universal
Some tear the scab anew
People turn away
Impatient and frustrated
Nobody likes pain
That sits invisible
Upon the soul of another
They run from infection
Healing continues on
A day is good
Filled with hope and light
Then darkness comes
Birthed by one stumble
And the wound bleeds

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
