Healing happens in layers

Peeling gently at the scars

Pulling at the skin the muscles the tissues

Reminding me there is more

than I can feel.

Healing happens in layers

A bloody practice

Skinning the disguise away

Exposing the wounds

Gnawing at the scars you thought were history

Bandaged with present and hopes of tomorrow

Scraping the edges toughened with time

Healing happens in layers

Accepting ‘closure’ is not the aim.

Today I healed a little more.

Hoping you survive this too

Hating the trauma that wrecked us both

With relentless love that no one hoped.
