im split
so i use my band aid
patch up the wound
until further notice
over and over again and
sometimes i forget
that my skin isnt fabric
im looking for a patch of flesh
left on my person
but its all just sticky tape
and bubble gum
i ran of bandaids
or they all split
ripped in two
because bandaids
were never designed for perminance
never designed to hold together a bleeding person
whos seems are indistinguishable
whos heart is dripping
whos body is filling
up up up to the brim
whos about to pop
but aomehow never does
