the cuts.

she had cuts on her wrists
her hips, her lips
souvenirs from an old boyfriend
why did she do it?
what did she use?
knife or scissors, what did she choose?
i didn’t like the look of them
and they were even worse to touch
the ones that had healed had turned to white
but, some were still fresh
some were still bright
bloodied and red, distorting her flesh
our sex was self pity
not a thing for love
but, i didn’t want to hurt her
i fear she couldn’t take anymore
because eventually one cut
will be a cut too far.
