Love’s Repair – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.” Baltasar Gracian

Love's Repair

When did you begin to remember that
there are many ways to move even though
you wouldn't have said it like that and,
it might be your imagination speaking
forgotten confessions, knowing now that
you cannot escape yourself no matter the 
distance travelled you always arrive at you,
and did you notice that there are versions
that arise from the scars of the journey,
did you also notice that none are beyond 
love's repair?

  3. It would be nice to think that my injuries are not beyond loveโ€™s mending. Iโ€™m kind of far gone now for love, myself โ€” too injured just physically, never mind the rest โ€” but I suppose one must expect that at nearly sixty three years of age. If I am allowed now to be peaceful in solitude I will count myself content.

  5. My imagination was exploding in all directions, Paul. Wonderful poem. When I read that quote, I thought of a baby being born, but of course, it could have even been before that time, and then all points beyond. Brilliant.

  6. Well said. And yes, I did notice.


  7. Scars of the journey are reminders of love’s repair. Without them, there would be no healing, and the pain would remain.
