Flesh Wound

Rubbing alcohol will only make it burn
And sowing it shut will only make it hurt
Kissing it better shows you’re concern
But covering the scar will only make it worse
Putting on ice will only stop the swell
And using a bandage will only cover it away
It’s good hearing you say, “Hope you get well”
But I will get better, only if you stay
Rubbing on cream will only stop the itch
And setting it in place will only cause the pain
A needle and thread will only leave a stitch
But you holding me will be the most I will gain
Sucking the venom will only stop the sting
Removing the bullet will only stop the bleeding
Washing the “Flesh” doesn't make it clean
Saying you love me doesn't change the feeling
Exposing the “Wound” will only make me queasy
And giving me shots will make me have a fit
This shows that falling in love just isn't easy
Nursing the past to health is just the half of it

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Love is like a trip to the doctor...
You wait for the results..
And figure out how to recover.
