scar

you are the wound that never healed

the itch i scratched 
until I bled dark onto eggshell carpets

the scab that formed 
that i tore at 

until you became part of my skin tissue
a distorted stain on creamy white

i cannot feel you any longer
but your damage is carved deep
and it shows on the surface

  2. That last line really is perfection, isn't it? Amazing what can happen when you let people in and let them live in your lungs. Beautiful words as always, lovely.
