This Knot of Griefs

This knot of griefs that I have tried for years to cut or disentangle hugs my side, the sullen child of loneliness. Mornings I’d rather sit alone, it sits with its spear in my side, focusing attention as a black hole draws in space and light. Though I beam like a favourite sun, yet there’s no cure for happiness like gravitation.

Enough of angrily dismembering misfortune’s child, or choking its hard ball of sorrows down. I’ll take the prince on walks beneath the tall sky stuffed with howls and talk and show this child the world in which I shall seek mercy for us both, remembering.
