On healing

i have carved time
into my skin
every day its own
small scar
i’ve worn out shoes
walking the earth
to get from you
away and far

fucked lots of women
and some men
to forget the way
your body feels
fell in love
and out of it
waited to see how much
time heals

a body bloody
and blistered feet
sickness of both flesh
and heart
to always show
you’re still with me
although apart
