My name is Scar,
And that’s what I do.
I take your soul,
Take from you
Until you’re no longer whole,
Before leaving the emotional wounds
To form metaphorical scar tissue.
It’s in my nature.
I cannot help it.
Believe me, I’ve tried.
Yet I find myself
Committing these awful crimes
Against some of the men
That I spend time with in bed.
Only the ones that get attached
Suffer this consequence.
Their hearts, some of them believe, I have “attacked”.
However this accusation is unfair,
For an attack is intentional act,
To defeat someone, or cause humiliation or despair,
Or a combination of two or three of these impacts,
None of which I ever wanted them to bear.
I try to warn them,
But some of them
Refuse to listen,
While some of them,
Their feelings, they cannot help.
Scar is my name
And it’s what I do best,
And this statement,
It is best not to test,
Lest you end up
With scars on your chest.
