The third weal – A Poem

The Third Weal

Two so loved
tear each other
Both so stubborn
So stubborn
Tear each other


Always underneath
Layers of grief
Layers of need
See me
See me


Both have everything
Which the other is asking for
Trapped in Gordion knots
Vulnerability cuts
Anger cannot


Don't fight anymore
Look beneath it all

They turn
Upon the arbiter
Who saves them thus
With every cut

The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  1. Love this stanza:

    Always underneath
    Layers of grief
    Layers of need
    See me
    See me

    strong poem…

  2. Todd Ehlers says:

    Lovely, if hurtful (yet truthful) along its way.

      Thank you Todd – I do seem to either rant with humour or bleed with poetry! Must find the middle path one day!

      • Todd Ehlers says:

        I know how this is. Occasionally only verse seems to do the job we wish to convey to others. Mixing the two is among the more difficult of prose projects.

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
