Thick Skin

TW: some people might not like my metaphorical use of physicality representing heartbreak as it resembles abuse too closely.

Thick skin
With her heart on her sleeve
Bruises easily
With marks that don’t leave

A hand print left
At least there’s evidence
The crime scene’s in the making
Investigation pending

It’s marked in her blood
Her heart in pieces
Body marred with scars.

A happy ending
As elusive as ever
Like a book
With its end pages ripped out.
