Open wound

Open wound

Did you hear? There’s an open wound for sale

A pretty pinkish reddish tomb deep of a wound for sale

A freshly picked scab of a wound; red as a rose newly bloomed for sale

Filled with a precious history, located in a place of mystery, glistening ready for a new owner for new tales kind of wound for sale

A pus-sy, cussy, almost crusty, wound with character for rent

I’ll lend it to you and collect every red cent

A constant reminder of a careless mistake, an oops of sorts, a chance to remember that healing is possible kind of mark that will help others similar relate

A sore, battle wound, a permanent marker

Something I couldn’t really give away for free even if the skin was darker

I have this wound that I would like to donate, I can’t seem to find any takers

I’ve even advertised my precious wound in Sunday’s paper

I guess no one is brave enough to take this wound off of my hands, who am I kidding I put it there in the first place

Why purchase a wound from someone who you can’t even trust to run a full course race

Someone who has never learned the lessons from the wounds, only make them bigger, well, cheaper?

I don’t know the answer but when you find it out let me know, then I’ll know you’re a real keeper
