Walking Wounded


Apparently
I'm
walking
wounded.
At least
that's what she said.

I knew the scars
were there
below the surface
but
to my surprise
utterly visible.

She said,
It's in your eyes today
in how you walk
in the tightness of your lips
you're........wounded.

I thought I could
hide it away
bury it forever
but no, she's right.
I'm
walking
wounded.
