PAD Day 6 – “Things-not-as-they-appear” poem

You might think I’m on a roll and you’d be right.  Day 6’s prompt was to write a not-as-it-seems poem; which was super-fun!  I hope to keep up this momentum…

SCARRED FOR LIFE
Let it go; let it grow. Make the scratches to and fro. Let it injure; let it bleed. Let the wounds begin to feed. Let it color; let it write. Let a vision come to sight. Drink the soreness; salvage up. Let the battle fill the cup. Scars are winning.   Scars are fierce like the needles which first pierced. It’s not your husband; not your wife – just a vision come to life. It’s forever; nix undone. Got to get you more than one. Though its pain brings flight or fight, sit for hours to get it right. It’s a thousand-year taboo. But it’s brandished proud and true. It’s not your husband; not your wife – just a part of you for life. A tie that cannot be undone. Got to get you more than one. Though the healing is a fright you suffered eons to delight in this thousand-year taboo that scars you ‘til you’re blue.

But fuck-it-all, you’ve earned the juice to enjoy a new tattoo!

About LVital7019

Just your normal, everyday 9-5er. An uninspiring position in an inspirational non-profit moves me to constant goof-offery; aimless, on-the-job procrastination; a crankiness that borders on psychosis; and attempting to craft something meaningful with words. Just another so-called-job inspiring someone to feats of insanity with a hint of creativity... (Insert demonic laugh HERE.) View all posts by LVital7019

Just because you don't see the struggle, doesn't mean someone isn't drowning.. Pain of the mind is worse than pain of the body.
