TUESDAY: A Scar

BY ANA VIDOSAVLJEVIC

It hurt me. Of course it did. How wouldn’t an open scar hurt you?
The knife cut my thigh so deep that the blood splashed the whole room,
And I kept bleeding, for minutes, hours, days,
Until there was nothing left to bleed. No blood.
But the scar is still there. Deep, terrifying, ugly.
It might stay there forever, even once it heals.
“I wish I never gave birth to you.” The ugliest knife ever.

    I hope this was not really said to you. If it was, then it doesn’t reflect who you are but the person who uttered the words. It touched me deeply. Thanks for sharing
