Promises I made, but never kept.

Wounds that never fully healed.

Tiny red pinpricks on my back.

Nails trying to rip apart my body.

Rip off the skin; hoping for something new below,

something beautiful.

A thousand scars to haunt me for eternity.

A thousand things to hide.

Hoping to contain it. Hoping to change it.

Hoping today won't be the day

I fall apart completely.
