A Healing Knife
and post notes and photos about your poem like Edward Ibeh.
A heart besmirched with grime
on the surface and full of gunk inside;
so cold and unfeeling.
Broken; betrayed far too many times
and bloated with potent toxicity
Distrustful; full of bitterness and pain
Oh, may love be the healing knife
that surgically doctors and drains
this poor heart of abscess
May unconditional love stitch shut...
the lacerated wound, as a tailor
would a split seam
