I might have a scrappers knees,
wildflowers growing on my knuckles,
& I might remind you of every nasty thing
you ever did,
but I don’t see you in my mirror.

I just have the right
to hate my own face.

-

Oh atlas,
I think this hitchhiker’s heart
is breaking &
I don’t have the medical skill-
or the time
to suture the pieces
back together again.

So please;

lead me,
lead me
anywhere,
but here.

I'm a bit perplexed about the "scrappers knee" bit...

But otherwise, as always, this is purely lovely.

"I just have the right
to hate my own face."

Oh, boy. Do I ever feel you on that.

It'd be so much healthier (?) to hate others, but it's just so damn easy to hate myself instead.

"scrappers knee's" is basically implying a fighter. Someone who falls down and gets back up. :)
