Your Scars Are Showing

Your scars are showing today.

I see the ridges
where your wounds were raw,
where your skin grabbed on
and refused to give up.

I see those red places
where the pain has not yet abated,
where the injuries blaze
in fresh agony.

When you self-destruct,
I imagine your heart
clawing it’s way out of your chest,
gripping ragged flesh,
pouring it’s bloody angst
out on wooden tables.

I imagine your scars ripping open
and displaying all you’ve given up,
all we’ve lost
between your shore and mine.
