The splinter

Hurting

Grief and loss are like a splinter

That lodge so deep in our body/mind/soul

And take a long time to work their way to the surface

Some losses and grief

Lodge so deeply within us

That they never find their way out

Instead they become deeply entangled

In our very cell tissue

Making us bleed and weep from the inside

For ever more
