Favorite Quote:
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”

― Mary Oliver

i am a scar
yet prominent and

a story,
an effect of
pain so numb
it demands to be felt.

i am a scar,
you’ll look at me
one day and truly see

how this haggard
surreal reality
has crushed my
identity, and formed me

i am hot clay
causing blisters on your hands
twisted and prodded into something
conforming to your
idea of lovely

a black flower,
that you give to others.
