Talking to Your Scars

bulldyke's picture

lying back on soft pillows
*can you hear me?*
i rest my aching limbs
*will you touch me?*
fan blows gentle wind
chills me to my bone
*are you there?*
*protect me?*

it's a cruel harsh world
your scars tell me
*run away?*
but your eyes say different
*what happened?*
i can feel your heartbeat
for what it's worth

dark sky above
dark earth around
*save me*
sun now, and warm
icy flows begin to melt
*we fall apart*
i love you
*i love you*
