tucked in my tire. I drove for miles with you pushing your barb through my ribs. ******* air out of my treads. Now I’m flat as unleavened bread.
You were the pebble stuck in my shoe, cutting into me with every step I took. You found a nook to set up shop. I couldn't walk without you digging into the *****, making it swollen and red. Ripping it to shreds like two cats fighting on the bed.
You were the splinter that snuck in my hand. You landed as an airplane under the skin and infected me. Lumpy and itchy as poison ivy. A rash that can’t subside. I ooze like a pimple poked in the middle covering my face like the tide.
