There was
no cut,
no bruise,
no tear,
no break,
no rip,
no burn.

But a scar,
deep,
red hot,
ice cold,
coursing through
the wounded child,
for whom

I grieve.

God, I understand this.

It gets better, though.

Peace and love,

Kind of says it all, doesn't it, Scot? I felt the cold/hot blade cut right through me as I read your poem. It pierced my chest and came out the bottom of my abdomen. I felt it. It was real. Amazing words. Right to the point, so to speak.
Wow!

Wow - that pretty much sums things up!

I can certainly relate...
