On the other side

On the other side

Of something

Maybe we don’t

Talk enough

About it

It is something

To talk about

When suffering

Lifts even if

Temporarily

Isn’t this

What many of

Us live for

A blossom

A bud of

Renewed

Possibility

Body aches

Relieved

Temporarily

A broken heart

Takes a long time

To heal

A re-broken heart

Even longer

Still

Getting to

The other side

As they pull

At us still

We slowly

Feel the scars

As they start

To heal

Elasticity of

Existence

returns

Eventually

On the otherside

Of things
