Skin

Written December 10, 2011

it’s only skin.

my skin,
slightly tanned with
chronic goosebumps,
an anomaly
that bothers you not.

why fear this one?

these red lines
are not angry;
they just are.

they are
survival.

it’s only skin,
and it heals

much much faster
than wounds my mind
inflicts upon my heart,
when i can’t control
my racing thoughts.
