a darker shade than bruised

Posted to Poetry




you never fail
to hurt me

whether it's my emotions
that take the hit
or some other,
more visible,
part of me

you leave me bruised
nonetheless

but still
i go back to you
when you ask for me
because we can be
so right together
that i must believe
that the wrong
is a mistake

but every time
i get another scar
to add
to my collection
