Scars

a beautiful victory

so much pain in one line.

it tells a horrible story:

nobody saw the sign.

 

it tells of untold pasts,

emotions released in slits;

we'll see how long it lasts

until again the skin splits.

 

maybe some day far away

those lines will fade

just a reminder of the gray

in which they were made

 

but for now they will stay

never again to be a mystery

unhidden, out on display

because they are my history.
