>Looking for “forgiveness”

Is what he said to you,
As if the bruises given,
didn’t go below epidermal surfaces.

Where they nestled themselves,
like leeches looking for,
more blood and pain.

Burrowed in the years,
Contusions and scars,
visible on the surface

So broken underneath …
Forgiveness is looking,
for a warm place to hide
