Goosebumps.

I sometimes think coldness is an implausible link in my anatomy,
A taunting source of feminine destruction
that bleeds through my mind spilling from my entirety.
The peppered puckering across my pale skin
is the war torn armour of life’s indestructible soldier.
Only, indestructible doesn’t mean pristine.

  1. “Only indestructible doesn’t mean pristine” is such a powerful line. Nothing ever leaves us without scars and marks regardless of how invincible we may be. I love the way you write Karen 🙂

    1. Thank you Eric, I put a lot if thought In to that line, I wanted something that said, I might be an indestructible warrior but, some of that coldness that runs through me now is the result of my wars. Thank you kiddo, you always have such nice things to say 🙂

      1. What is it with you WordPress women calling me kiddo and little man!!! 😥 I’m gonna file a complaint Lol if i wasn’t so secure I’m sure you would all be causing me trauma 😛 as for your line, you captured what you set out to beautifully!
