with/out/er scars

Recommended Posts

my friends show me their scars

made by this that and their own

sword

 

i touch my skin

bruised and pimpled

the hangnails are my work

but not the scabs reminders of

blood

 

a girl i know walking in the rain

with bair feet makes a pretty picture

but sidewalks tred to escape leave sore

heels

 

i am walking through the world not

stepping on myself

and it feels unfair

that their ways lie over their own

bodies

 

seems unfair how much they get pushed down

when i am extended an arm

i guess i'll be

thankful

 

you can ride on my back for a while

instead of your own 

and we two will raise no blades

against ourselves
