Scar Tissue

I see eyes roll

And people pull away

I hear voices chatter 

Every single day

I hear nothing 

From you 

When all I want 

Is to see 

Your name

Across my screen

Every stranger that lets 

It be known

My family is too much

It can’t be helped

It’s internal

This aversion 

To being with me

You’ve stuck pins

Into my drywall

Holes don’t heal

They just harden

One layer of scar tissue

 At a time

When life feels 

Like such a crime
