Grief and Sorrow Like a long sword slew the Dragon
Grief and sorrow like a long sword slew the dragon
The blade removed
No mark was left behind
Like a bloodless sacrifice
at the death of the monster of the deep
And the sea returns to wholeness
The patient walks again
Grief and sorrow have
Destroyed in me
The whirlwind of the day
One moment at a time
Returns to me
And I walk free.

Sarah this is brilliant!! Ah, if only we all knew that grief and sorrow were our closest allies … 'And the sea returns to wholeness' and
'Grief and sorrow have / Destroyed in me / The whirlwind of the day, have got to be among your best lines to date. It's a very deep truth; and tragically the results of the complete opposite are played everyday in a God-rufusing world. It was the Man of Sorrows who destroyed sin – that where this poem ultimately leads me to.
Keep posting! x
This reminds me of what I was trying to get at in my poster "The Poison is the Remedy".
