Scar tissue that I wish you saw


The Mark You Left

There are many of them
Lining my body
Pink, tan, white
Short and stark
Long and thin
Places where I have been opened

There are more of them
Hidden from view
Buried inside
Thick and ragged
Some still bleeding
Places where I have been broken

This one on my arm will always remind me of you
Two inches long
Brown against peach skin
The last time I let myself be completely open
The final one to see all of me and not parts

It’s the smallest scar you left on me
The only one that’s visible
It will always remind me that you were here
Do you have such memories of me?
