” SKIN GRAFFITI “~by Martin Gedge



POEM ” SKIN GRAFFITI ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: one or more people, outdoor and water

Tattoos and bathroom blues

a soul that bares the skin

written are the signs of life

and feelings harbored in

pain that wears the thorny crown

in colors black and white

scars of hurt you want to drown

that wrap the body tight

each one a clue a light you knew

that shimmers in the dark

one to bleed the dyer need

to pierce and wounded heart

and to erase the awful taste

the script of words you long

you cannot break or will you take

the peace that makes me strong

for there is fight into my right

the canvas I must show

a work of art in every part

to follow where I go

it’s not mask for you to ask

or something to believe

but just my life from every knife

I wear upon my sleeve…
