13 Inches - Poem by Patrick Ruthra

Blatant honest is fine. Candy-coated words can only be nursed off of for so long. Most mean well. I know it's how I take things, or maybe it's how I hold on to hopeless things for so long. Being unafraid laying down hard-earned scars beneath those clumsy boxcars.
