What mean they to you?
Do you think of math level two?
Or are these written lines you see,
The parallels in poetry,
What comes to mind initially?
I'll tell you what lines I think of:
Lines that speak of lack of love.
Lines that show anguish and pain.
Lines that cut again and again.
My arms. They hurt.
My heart. It cries.
But so do I.
But so do I...
Lines on my arms will fade with time,
But what I feel and what I hide
Will for ever be denied
The scarring that it needs to heal.
Oh well, I guess I'll have to deal.
