The time has come to
Face the moment
Pull the stitches one by one
Fragile scar is barely faded
Tattered thread is met with blood

Band-aids ripped
Sutures opened
Plaster shattered
Tape undone

Cut begins to whisper whisper
Pain is screaming louder louder
Gash starts growing larger larger
Hidden needles act as daggers
Piercing into "healed" abrasions
Previously had i thought protected

Acting quickly
Steps are taken
Pain is hidden
Throbbing lessened
Feeling for the newfound bandage
I wince
Scars ripped open to create a new Wound
