It’s useless to wait for the wounds to start healing,
The trick is to learn how to savor your grief, -
Is this why you find the slack-line appealing –
Regaining your balance, if ever so brief?
Is this why your photos are so saturated? -
You find in others what you miss in yourself.
The absence you feel just can’t be sedated,
We are nothing alike, but I fear this as well.
