Healer

Through your love

through your words

and mine

I am growing into a healer

Through my prose

and my poetry

I decompose

show, reveal

the inner workings

of the heart and the mind

I bring wounds to the light

extract the infected tissues

purify the sane skin

under the action of the sun and the wind

and then I offer the caresses, the tenderness

to knit the wound

and regrow the layers of skin

until the pain of the past

is nothing but a distant memory

and the reasons for which it has occurred

are understood and healed

so that it never happens again

and this new found wisdom is used

to grow wings

and step into the mountain lands of our dream
