Transient Crown Cinquain

Expand the wound
Imagine oxygen
Rejuvenating the damage
Breathe deep

It gets better
Manifest inner strength
Although it feels like forever
Time heals

It’s true
This too shall pass
Heartbreak is transient
Seasonal, ephemeral like

Hold on
Winter’s temporary
Pain’s a bittersweet chrysalis

Can catalyze
Great purpose after rest
Dormant doesn’t equal barren

It gets better
Heartbreak is transient
Pain’s a bittersweet chrysalis
