Don't hide your scars (+Reading)

Take off your clothes,
don't hide your scars
I love them, †
you cannot understand
Let's count the mental wounds
Time after time †
and again and again
 
Your body is like a †
book of stories,
All cuts are a separate story
I'm tired of arguing †
with you because of them,
And there is no need

How much pain have you †
suffered with me?

I do not need an answer †
You are now like an open book,
And until dawn comes ...
 
We will not say a word to †
each other ...
forgetting our names, †
Running torment in a circle,
Drinking desire and pain
to the bottom

Author's Note
I find it very difficult to share some things from the past and it creates a lot of anxiety and conflict especially when you were conditioned to never speak about something. In regards to my previous post, I was not trying to portray a sense of weakness. Instead I wanted to say whatever does not kill you makes you stronger. Our history shapes us for better or worse but we become wiser and stronger for it. I just felt like I needed to say that.
