I have a gaping wound
Can you see it?
It’s right here – this deep gash from my head to my bowels
The bleeding has subsided
No longer pooling from my toes to my nostrils
I can breathe now
But I ache

You did this to me
You who were supposed to protect me
You who were supposed to love me
You gutted me and passed along the knife
To those who would follow

You don’t see it
You don’t see me
I always have been and always will be

Invisible

Trying to tend to this gaping wound
Covering it up so nobody would see how
Damaged
I am

I will never forgive you
For doing this to me

Do you hear me?

I will never forgive you
