i like sleeves with thumb holes at the bottom
they cover up my hands
and wrists
and arms
they cover up seven years of scars
is it really self harm
ive never been able to tell
Outsider Apr 28
I wear my heart on my sleeves.
As in the cuts that bleed.
Where everyone can see that I´m damaged.
How I´m broken,
ruined,
to pieces.
One can never fully recover.
As my cuts turn to scars,
my sleeves will still,
never be the same.
As the same for my heart.

So tired, she thought it best
to wear her heart on her sleeves
and get things off her chest

Ignored a notion misconceived
that living like an open book
would only make her more naive

She said if they simply take another look
they'll see a clear transparency
and maybe, just maybe, let me off the hook

Funny how after all these years
I can still smell you on my sleeves
The scent lingers
It's like you never left.
I know you're long gone, but i still got the same old jumper on, the one i wore all those nights you held me close.

p.s. today would've been our 1 year anniversary if we were still together.
are
my tears
mock me
again
grindersedges
for your skin
wool
man
pipping stars
watch them hatch
stone glaciers
keep calming
me back
?
