Scars

You say you love me.
You want me.
You know me.
Do you? Do you see the lines?
The marks? The welts?
Can you touch them?
Will you touch them?.
Trace them? Embrace them?
All those artists that came before
Splattered the canvas of my soul.
These scars I bear I wear for one.
For only one. The one. My one.
Are you the brave and gentle touch
That can take this painted man
And frame him with your heart?


Inspired by the poem Embrace by @Lost Soul. She is an amazing writer.
