Bittersweet…a fitful taste

So many experiences in life have been bittersweet, at a young age I could not fathom why anyone could find sweetness in bitterness…but I think it is that ability to see even that sad, dulled, faltering sweetness in the bitterness of life that allows us to heal and move on…

bittersweet
a fitful
taste
an ever changing face
ever at a stop and start evolving pace
a back and forth of past and present
of regret and attempts at renewal
of new salt on old wounds
of fear forgot and fear anew
sweetly bitter truths
that sting and soothe
and scar no less.
