Scab #25 Poem a Day

4 posts in this topic

Scab

 

You itch

like a crusty sore

still new enough to stick

and bleed beneath.

I want to scratch

at the scaly husk

to rid myself of you

but I know, to pick

only stings and opens

a slippery wound.

I will clip my nails,

ignore the prickle,

and like a scab

you will fall away.
