Skin

my skin holds many secrets
both outsiDe and on the in
each scar has a stOry
bottled deep withiN.
and jusT because a mark is absent
doesn't mean that patch is pure
Cuts will scar but scratches fade
Leaving none the wiser
words carved into flesh remain forever
while those on the sUrface fade away
and a patch of skin, so clean
is lefT at the end of the day
