Silent Hurt

We each dress our wounds

in secret,

winding round them

tight bandages of silence;

lest they allow to seep

drops of hurt

that appear as grief;

perhaps infecting those who come

too near.

Do we do disservice

to those whose hands bear only soothing balm?

    It is also sometimes surprising when we do venture to share our hurt or grief with another soul, to discover they too have a similar hurt they were also keeping silent. Sharing can bless and lift both at once. ❤
