Twisted Flesh

He worried at it

He wouldn’t keep hands off

The flesh mocked him

It pained him

He scratched, rubbed, nursed

Never asking

Could it please just stop

He didn’t realize fully

I loved him anyway

I did not ignore it

It just didn’t change how I felt

The twisted flesh

Could not diminish

My superman.
