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

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.
