I pick at scabs
and watch them bleed
and heal
and bleed again.

People tell me not to
but they don’t know how it feels.

  1. After all
    Little purple mountains
    Seem so much more interesting
    than red rivulets
    or plain clear skin
    even when all that lies beneath them
    is just that


  2. [purely literal meaning]

    i think scabs are awesome to peel off.. So much concentration and patience is required. As one wrong mood and u bleed again. Its like removiong that license disk sticker froma windscreen, without leaving pieces sticking to glass…
