Bellyaches & Bruises

A simple touch

A tender sweep across the skin

My stomach skin burns like a fever

My skin rashes and dries out

This isn’t my body

Not how I remember it

And not how I want it

Like track marks up my arms from the consistent IVs and needles

I’m embarrassed

Already 4 pounds lighter

Down the path already traveled

Just a more winding road

Unexpected turns ahead

A never ending spinning mind

What’s next for me?

Do I even want to know?
