Once More

Once more
I take my mending kit
And sew this jagged line
I suture it with tears
Threaded as they fall
Into this heart of mine
The scars are deep
The skin is thin
I’ve learnt my trade
To weave the wounds
To intertwine the pain
And heal this heart of mine
So I smile
And hide the tears
I know you think
My heart is hard
It’s not the case with
This heart of mine
Bank your pity
Spend it not
On me
I have learnt to weave
The light with tears
Into this heart of mine
Healing’s triple helix
The sacramental trinity
Light and water 
Mixed with grace
Will mend 
This heart of mine
