SCAB

I       will   be

the hard skin on your bended knee

I will protect you like an insect shell

outgrown after a week

Then you can genuflect in front of every figurehead you happen to meet

 

Your soft warm pink parts are safe behind my heart

It only gets harder as you bleed

Your soft parts are safe in me

I only get harder as I bleed

 

But You

keep picking at

You Keep picking at

Keep picking at the wound

 

Don’t throw away the water with the baby

It’s the same mistake your mother made

The skin and the bandage so hard to disengage

They grow together with blood and age

 

It’s getting hard to disengage

Who am I without you anyway?

 

I       will   be

the hard skin on your bended knee

I will protect

you like an insect

shell outgrown after a week

Your soft warm pink parts

are safe behind my heart

it only gets harder as you bleed

Your soft parts are safe in me

who am I without you anyway?
