I See the Scars

Standard

“Yes, darling I see the scars you cover up and the scabs you pick at
I never have the words
I never have the judgment to know what you want to hear from me
Complimented with what you need to hear from me
But you cover up and push away my concern with okays and fines
And I can only try to pick of the pieces of dry paint that fall off you as the days get harder
I can only try to stitch with shaky hands the rips and tears
I could only love the added character and hints of charm
Better than I could ever keep you away from harm”

About TJ

In 2015 my family moved from a small village in mid-Michigan to five beautifully forested acres in Northern Michigan. We love the lakes and rivers, the forests, and the billions of stars we can see in the night sky, as well as the many cultural and historical activities in our area. We also love that the deer and wild turkeys come right up to our house. This is where our hearts are! I have multiple cats (five the last time I counted), and a sweet introverted dog who rarely barks and who deeply loves the six adorable ducks and nine chickens that have become part of our family. I enjoy reading, studying, writing, and learning new things. I also enjoy walking my dog, cuddling my cats, and gardening. I love nature. The world fascinates me.
