the healing muse

Volume 6, 2006


Bruce Bennett

Love grapples with the darkness. Darkness wins.

There’s nothing left to hope for. Hope begins.


Sign Language

Bruce Bennett

You showed me on your wrist
small lines I would have missed,

Thin scars that scored your skin,
but would not let me in

To what was cracked and broken,
to what remained unspoken.
