What do you do when a wound was never given time to heal?
It’s been left untreated for months
continuously poked and torn and ripped.
Do you reach for closure for it to begin mending
or do you bite your cheek, tighten your lungs, and walk on?
Do you risk what the little stability you are balancing
or do you continue to always live on with an open injury?
Without closure, the wound cannot close
but maybe that very closure will only worsen it all.
