Scars show the battles
The ones I've lost.
Arched, puckered, ugly
But I'll show you them
I'll show you
The ones I've lost.

Long sleeves hide the trail
But scars tell a story
One arm a horrific fight
One leg a slow climax
Wherever, whatever, they'll always be
The ones I've lost

Soon I'll have recovered
For your sweet words hold me dear
Your lips brush the white lines
Your fingers against my hip
You'll never let me go
The ones I've lost
                ...are distant...
2/5 of my perhaps submissions into the Poetry Screams competition

Please comment and vote when the poll comes out :')

Lani, ASuicidalPoet

Love you.

And I've lost so many battles. But I'm winning the most difficult one. Staying alive; staying here. I'm not sure that this is a battle I wish to win, but it's one I'm winning nonetheless.

Oh! I met a girl. She's beautiful and sweet and when I'm with her, I'm blissfully happy. I had forgotten what happiness was till recently. But she reminds me why I've held on so long.

She's so beautiful, covered in the battles she's lost.

But I think we're going to win this battle together. I really hope we are.

Be careful with that... having two people with lose battles makes it challenging. But I'm very very happy for you :')
Love you too xx
