Tattoo

 

 

There’s an emptiness

inside of me

I can never get back,

 

A place in time

I can’t rewind.

It happened when I was barely nine.

 

Your massive white hands

on my tiny black body.

I have a blemish I can’t scrub off.

 

So again I plea,

Let go of me.

Your like a ghastly tattoo,

I’ll never get rid of you.
