Surface Scratches


The force that pulls me away
Can never break the chain that binds us
Forced to bring forth
What was left behind us.
The sun rose in our eyes, but still didn't blind us
From what we chose the night before.
Beneath the clothes thrown on the floor
Words leak through clenched teeth
Exposing open sores.
What's my weakness?
Can she see that
All her secrets leave me speechless?
Blood-sucking leaches on my skin
They say it cleans us from the in.side out.
And backwards
Still can't find out how this happened
Reached inside and found some matches
Struck a flame then blamed the ashes
For my imperfections.
Surface scratches.
