Like a Wound so Deep and Raw
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman

When heartache burns in your body
Like a wound so deep and raw
When there is no joy in living
Hurt is crushingly bruising all

It is time to think of others
Who are hurting perhaps more than you
When in comforting someone else
You begin not to be so blue

The hurt may not go away
But the distraction gives some peace
Getting new perspective
Brings to life a coming new lease

Time and action heal heartache
The hurt will slowly, painfully go
The mind and heart give over
Joy and calm begin again to flow

Joy and calm begin again to flow

Like a Wound so Deep and Raw (c)2003 Quentin Clingerman
