Under My Skin: Series

Just my skin. Knows what I’ve seen. What I’ve felt. Who I am. Where I’ve been.

 Just my skin.
Shows how long it’s been.
Since I’ve been held by the flame.
 
Just my skin.
Knows how long it’s been.
Since it ever wanted to be close,
to anyone ever again.
 
Just my skin.
Knows what I’ve seen.
What I’ve felt.
Who I am.
Where I’ve been.
 
Just under my skin.
Is where I am.
You can’t find me here,
because I am there.
Why try to explain myself
when nobody cares?
I hide in plain sight.
Out there in plain view.
But still you cannot see me.
Because your motives and thoughts are skewed.
So I stay there, hiding.
Somewhere else.
Just under
my skin.
