Scars & Torn Flesh

“Constellations in her skin
Rivers on her mind
Midday swims
Can’t wait to share her love
with someone who believes
she is so much more
than enough

Not trying to convince
Not trying to win
the hearts of toads
Who behave like princes
She’s waiting for her king
to come riding in
Who can take off his armour
and reveal to her
his battle scars
that it took him to get here

Then she’ll know it’s safe
To show
The flesh she has torn
waiting for him.”
