Survival || Viano Dee

They say wounds take time to heal;
they say time heals everything. Well,
I am wounded — guess time will heal

But how long will it take?
Now that it is in a broken state —
my heart, I mean. How soon will it
get out of the ICU?

They tell me I don’t look it; they’re not
even aware it’s been there.
No worries. I’ve been coping.
I’ve grieved enough. I’ve smiled a lot;
sometimes too occupied — it goes ignored.

It’s worked too hard and loved beyond words.

I’m starting to feel it go numb. Can it be resuscitated? Gradually emotions are fading out — it’s building resistance,
slowly getting cold.

It’s losing grip. It’s tired, it’s scared
and so has built a wall — a wall
where no sunlight can reach,
where love will not search.

It’s numb.
It’s cold.
It’s gone — for now.

Will it ever return?
I guess time will tell.

About Survival

The poem is about a broken heart. One that has given all and is left empty. In order to survive, the heart goes numb by shutting out every feeling or desire to fall in love. The poet reveals that only time will tell if the heart will be open to love again.
