Sunday Scribblings "Raw"

G'Day,
Hope all are well out there. I am.

Raw

A slash, a cut
another open wound
to the heart
opening up,
suppurating into the memory
of past raw wounds
and down into the abyss we fall.
For a while.

Oooh tha's a bit scary isn't it?
We all have been down there at some time or other haven't we. What matters is that we pick ourselves up and get on with it again. That dark abyss is a terrible place to stay.We do what we have to. How do you go about picking yourself up again. Please share.
Short entry this week.

BYE
Love Linda.

The abyss is scary. But I suppose we have to go there at times to get to where we want to go.

A very powerful poem.. I liked it very much! So true, it is human nature to try to survive. No matter how many times we find ourselves lost in darkness, we will eventually find the desire and the courage to crawl our way out. How do we do it? Sometimes simply by putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward thru the hours and each day as if by remote. Eventually moving forward becomes easier and our direction more clear. Hope... belief in a brighter future... is essential to picking up the pieces and reassembling our lives.

Sadly that "For a while" last line can be endless. This is a really moving piece.
