By Leonard Pigg

All her self-inflicted scars told a tale
Hidden on the less obvious parts of her body
The harshness of rejection
Scabs of desperation riddled her arms
Tiny little jabs on thick thighs
One represented loneliness
Another, loves lost
Most, from abject boredom
Loyalty is an urban myth in her mind
Truth is to be molded at her leisure
Her methodology was self-sabotage
Pretend to love, then run
Lie, then flee from truth
Drink, then forget
Consume pills to level out
Inject to escape
Smoke to reduce lifespan
Pretend to like what he/she enjoys
Get into the character of being human
