bruised

looking at my Florida tan,
you wouldn’t think that it’s even
possible for me to even bruise;
but i’m black and blue and green.

and then there’s that contusion on
my heart you caused, which appears
colorless, but believe me when I
tell you; it’s black …
and no transplant or medical device
could heal it.

well, opiates…those will help.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
