PATHWAYS

written by: Roland Juthman

 

you cannot see my scars

Search as much as you want, there’s
no tracing them gently, no
kissing the folds, no
caressing the bumps
no hairless stripes
no raised veins
of resistance

Stop tracing my insides, stop
kissing, caressing
quit trying to turn on the lights
you will not find any scars

as I trace, kiss, caress
as I whisper your name
my curiosity swells

Would you heal?

I write. Mostly poetry and short stories. Have an affinity for quick-fire poetry. I write to unlock, to uncover, and to find truths. That is also why I read. For a living, I work as an editor within the educational publishing industry.
