unbroken (a timeline in prepositions)

return to that place?  I'll return only

to find what was once lost and

to fix this broken part of me

--that which was broken

to make what never was and

to pull down shade screens formed

to blind the penitent to newly ordered crimes--

and to forever fix this rift between the fixers and I.

Ray, I'm happy to know that it sparks any thought at all--you definitely couldn't be wrong. Our minds are all so unique and there is great beauty in that.

Thank you. And thanks to you too, David and Becky.

This is really a tricky one Rachel - as is a series of blind alleys awaits in the past, and someone at fault that puts you where are now. That's the best I can do.

The very best as always Ray

Thanks for reading, Sal. I don't want to give the impression of being unappreciative--I need encouragement probably as much as anybody. Often, I feel a bit too paralyzed to say much of anything. As much as I try to get around that, I guess I just need to accept it as part if me.

Sometimes I don't say anything for fear of wearing out my welcome with too many 'excellents' or 'great pieces' said, but you truly raise the bar with the poetry you write.

It's always a treat to read.
