After Death's Silence Joseph Lisowski

Stage of Healing

Healing is a lingering kiss
that lifts you from flesh.
In that instant, all is full.
A heartbeat's enough,
entire without hint of lapse.

But God's kiss is never
held long enough.
You inevitably take a breath.
And hope becomes a beggar
who wears your discarded clothes.
