Easily Bruised.

 

I know that if you look at me

You might think I would be tough,

But if you find yourself believing that

You haven’t looked enough.

 

My skin is not resilient

And it will split with ease apart,

A bruise might not be pleasant

But it doesn’t reach my heart.

 

Forget about the outside,

The exterior is just a shell,

The feelings hidden underneath,

So easily bruised as well.

 

I’ve got a stock of band-aids

To cover up the pains

But try to be more careful

For the hurt it just remains.

 

The scars upon the outside,

So easy to conceal;

Those that are inside of me

Will not ever heal.
