(Scar Tissue)

Angry, red, raw scar tissue.
Permanent reminders of love and loss.
Raised skin, striation of remembered pain.
Devolved into coarse, barren flesh.
You spew your bitterness, and hatred like a geyser.
Abusive words and speech low at worst, cruel at best.
Nothing is equal in this world.
People hate a color.
People hate a tribe.
People hate because they can.
Angry, red, raw scar tissue.
I call it love, for you just sex.
I say forever, you say the here and now.
I reach, you pull away.
I speak truth, you spew lies.
My heart is raised scar tissue.
Devolved into coarse barren flesh.
