Hold my scars
That happened when I chewed on thorns Of roses that I ate up
raw Trying to drink their color through soft petals Melting on my tongue Scars That came
from hitting stones That lay in destructive manner Too still in my way When I tried to break
them They mocked me by drawing lines On my
light skin Rough against smooth palms
Tough against pale knuckles But alas I
drank the color whole My blood dripping from my mouth in
words that spoke distorted of the secrets of the universe I
couldn’t understand, but I felt a light melt in my heart and shade it
bigger And alas I broke the stone At the
cost of broken bones I got up with shaky legs But still took steps That shook the earth For
I had turned to steel by proving There is nothing like a
rocky path for me So hold my scars
I gently place them on your fingertips That are
going to be the most gentle of beings to
ever grace me I trust with chapped lips and eyeballs on
fire I trust with the ice cold shock of desire I
trust with a thousand knives stabbed in my back Because I saw
what could come next Hold my scars
And I shall fade into stardust And all my scars
will become starlight that will soar through the heavens and form new
constellations A light alighting just to show us
our existence In painful freedom
