Day 283: memory

there are tears on the inside of my skin above my chest
the only scars i have left are under wraps
my pain is better left in the darkness
there is sun now
most days
i can convince myself to forget
the night can embrace you like that
but so can the sun
if you remember to love it
remember to hold it upright
that the tears
the tears were all worth it
cuz there were smiles too
you just cant see them anymore
those kinds of things dont attach themselves to your DNA and wait for darkness to sting
they shock you constantly
a freequent reminder of what used to be
thats how the darkness works
its only because it is the absence of something better
that it grabs at your spinal chord
a reminder
memory is your worst nightmare
