Scars are forever

The scars won’t leave
They’re here to stay
You can pretend
That it did not happen
But it did
And they’re not leaving
They have become a part of me
Part of my history
Part of our history
Part of my life.
I know you feel guilty
For not noticing sooner,
But I went to such lengths
To hide them from you.
You shouldn’t feel guilty
Because I didn’t want you to know.

I love acting,
And you know that.
It almost became a game
How long can I fool everyone?
Can I keep it a secret?
And guess what.
It worked.
Because the hiding,
It became a part of me.

So the scars must stay
Even if it is to keep me from
Repeating my past mistakes.
They must stay with me
Because they are a part of me
Etched across my arms
And my legs.
Where no-one can see,
But I see them,
And I remember the feeling.
Of being lost.
And I no longer want to
Because I know how much
You hate those scars.

Scars are forever
