You see me as love's lost soul;
Scarred heart jarred tight
In bitter juices;
Nerves jagged and splayed
On skin's surface suffer
The lightest touch.

But bitterness is mine!
My cleansing tonic
The noxious sweet
Of sentiment.

And this skin is mine, whole-
Within this armor
I'm free,
Not lost,
To see the limits
Of your embrace.
