BAND-Aid

Written by: Walayee Poet Lay Whitlock-Ishway

Like a Band-Aid on a gushing WOUND She will never be enough to hold it all together… Merely a temporary FIX that lead to a long term problem… She seeped skin at the seams and crusted over… You infused with her inevitable infection… RAW and bread unending pain unknowingly… Now both ends hold on for dear LIFE pulling at the weakened scab Smothering it with generic “HOME” remedies but nothing can prevent the impending deterioration… So, day by day the superficial grime GROWS and the unnatural wear shows… Your Internal defenses begin peeling away Her unyielding grip…While External elements re-actively reinforce this permanent SEPARATION.
