Processing old ghosts

Sticky silken spines
slip into spare spaces
silently

whispering messages
of past woes
past wounds
weathering the fibre
of being whole

once they were small irritating specks
annoying even
illusion cast now
comfort comes easily
from sharpness dulled in time
assurance rests in melancholic memories

pruning away pity’s precarious prickles
begs patience’s pardon
processing old ghosts
little by little
peeling away painful layers which have weathered wholeness
