The Veil ● POEM

Surrounded by ruins of past love

Her walls built then shattered

Over and over again

Now they were too heavy to lift

The pieces no longer fit together

They were broken

She was bruised

So instead of trying to build

A wall filled with cracks

She wrapped herself in layers

Of protective veil 

Spun out of memories and reminders

Through them she could still see

Her fingers still touch

Her lips still taste

And slowly over time

The bruises healed

Veils melted into skin

And she spun herself a new one

With room to spare

For future love 

For them to share
