“Dealing Poorly”

too terrible to put into

words and yet here i sit,

trying, feelings born of

past hurts and betrayals

from a time long ago

when i had it all together,

finding the very idea of

healing to be some cruel

joke as it never seems

to come, so i struggle

on and fight my way

forward, realizing, to my

chagrin, that time doesn’t

heal all wounds, some

fester and become infected

and eventually require

amputation
