Ink, Illustrated on skin

Each pattern has a meaning

boasting of circumstances and colours

symbolic of

love, hate, rebellion, stuff in between

of facts and memories, that one wished

to hold onto, tight, tight from

under the skin, ligament

even marrow, if I may add.

 

Strange dilemmas, to share or not to

share, to expose or not, the heartaches

determined to guard then just

scream it all out, a proof in pain, the

ultimate creative expression, intended to

preserve the spirit, an extended companion

for life; I ‘ll  add you in my list of the

strong and mad.
