Tattoo

she hasn’t thoroughly
inspected her skin
although she was told
it “feels so
smooth”

parts
she still can’t see
standing naked in front
of a mirror.

it was all but a
game and a joke
and a sticker on her
wrist
till she checked again
and saw a
tattoo

the problem with
falling in love is
that it is a fall.

A fall

leaves
everyone laughing
making memes

leaves one
perhaps breaking limbs

leaves one down
somehow

closer to the ground
dirtier

and is soon followed by
a winter.

a story etched
by the ink of pain
a journey from which
one can’t return

quite easy and simple
free for all.

no, she doesn’t want
anymore tattoos.
