The idea of spallation of the heart

I was reading through a physics book one night and came across the word “spallation.” Ha! I am married to a rocket scientist (truly) and he never mentioned this process to me. I began to read more on this subject and the result of that reading is the poem below. Survive is very personal to me and for me. In so many ways, words have been used against me to discredit things that I have, or have not done, and frankly… well, negative people will almost always be negative even if they are smiling when they say it. I choose light! It is the best way to walk without falling. KC.

Spallation is a process in which fragments of material (spall) are ejected from a body due to impact or stress (Wikipedia).

Talking of things you know not of
Using the expression “On the tip of the tongue”
Reality is captured
Like a caged, wild animal is contained but not tamed
Words used to express one’s superiority over another
Become the augmentation of air—whereas
Words hit their mark resulting
In spallation of the heart gain a critical advantage
Increasing power over the wild creature contained
But when the wild is loosed from its box
The power paradigm shifts
Overtakes and strips bare the contrived
Without a sword
Without a whim
Sheer will to express the deeply ingrained intuition
Survive
