Body Art

Body Art

A Poem by Melany Garcia
"

Many struggle to express themselves so we use other terms to describe our main reason I used a paint brush to describe a sharp object and paint as blood. I wrote this because it described how I felt.

"
Scars are memories
you choose to remember.
Your body is a canvass
You are in control,
With what the colors you choose 
Which ways you chose to lead the brush.
You create these unique patterns
Only you know how they were created.
To yourself your expressing your own emotion,
To others they stare as if your body is telling them your needy.
As if your body is just a statue filled with emptiness
Longing for their undivided attention.
To others it's easy to watch you create the art,
But to yourself you become numb as you create it.
Nobody is strong enough to take the brush,
Instead they're weak
So they watch you add more paint to the brush,
To paint another recent memory.
