SCAR STORIES – THE MARKS OF LIFE——————A FANTASY RESPONSE POEM TO “YET YOU STAYED” BY GINA/SINGLEDUST

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

I SAW YOUR SCARS

BECAUSE I SEE YOU

BECAUSE I CANNOT

LOOK AWAY FROM YOU

 

YOUR HEART

AND YOUR SOUL

THEY THRILL ME

AS DOES EVERY

INCH OF YOUR SKIN

 

WHAT DO YOU

KNOW OF ME

THAT YOU THINK

I DON’T CARRY

SCARS TOO,

THAT I DON’T

KNOW THE FEELINGS

OF HURT

AND LOSS

AND PAIN

AND SHAME

FROM SCARS

UPON MY SKIN

UPON MY HEART

UPON MY SOUL

 

I CARRY SCARS

AND SOME

ARE BEAUTIFUL

AND SOME ARE NOT

BUT THEY ALL HAVE

A STORY TO TELL

AS DO YOURS, MY DEAR

 

I WILL NOT TURN AWAY

FROM YOU, FROM YOURS

WILL YOU TURN AWAY

FROM ME

FROM MINE

FROM THE LINES

THAT MARK MY FACE

AS SCARS

 

THE MARKS OF LIFE

THAT I CARRY

ON MY HEART

ON MY SOUL

AND ON MY SKIN?

 

I AM HERE

AND I SHALL

STAY

WILL YOU

STAY HERE

WITH

ME?

 

CAN WE

SHARE

SCAR STORIES

TOGETHER?
