he signed his art with a kiss

You say the bruises

make my body look like art.

 

The blue and purple circles,

a much needed contrast

to the pallor of my skin,

the fading scars on my neck,

like detailed drawings

on a blank and boring canvas.

You say the pain in my face

makes me look artistic

But who gave you permission

to be my artist?
