'Scars' by Ramona Gore

It’s amazing

how so many injuries

that feel like the end of the world

don’t even leave a scar

That the wounds on my hands

from the time I scraped them

on the sidewalk

left behind no blemishes

Even though I recall

sobbing my eyes out

and in the most pain

I ever thought I could be

Yet there are nicks on my fingers

from things I can’t even remember

leaving their mark on me

in a way they couldn’t in my memories

All Rights. Ramona Gore.
