Underneath

Underneath

~

There is a skin beneath my skin

hid from light buried deep

inked with tears,

some regrets , then some fears

left a scar-

And sometimes I peel back for a look

blurry words mark the lines

where my soul dangles loose,

some regrets, then some fears

tie the noose-

 –

H.O


“Children show scars like medals. Lovers use them as a secrets to reveal. A scar is what happens when the word is made flesh.”

― Leonard Cohen, The Favorite Game
