You would have to
Read the book of me
Not just read the back
You must read all the pages
If you really want to know the facts

Its been Torn
Refurbished many times
Bought back looking good as new
For many years


Eye catching book
You will see
Pretty smooth cover
Carmel candy tone
Sexy finished package

They’ve become my frienemies
They’ve been a murderer within
Killing me so softly
They’ve controlled my thoughts
Creating so many doubts

To know the story
Of how they were birthed
The scars so far below
From the past

Beneath my clothes
So deep below
Beneath the surface
Beneath my skin
At the core

A microscope you will need in order to see
You can not see
What’s invisible
To the naked eye

A loving ear you will need in order to hear
From these lips
You will never hear
It freely uttered

A tender opened heart you will need in order to touch
You can not touch
It’s still opened
Exposed not healed enough

Scars that no one will know
Unless you stop looking at just my cover
Unless you make the time to discover
Unless you read from cover to cover

These scars will remain
Deep at the core
