IS IT?

Maybe…

It is a woman thing

To feel this way each time

This…

This tainted,

Stained.

Like a scarlet ‘A’ sewn into

The very flesh of your left

Breast

Always there

Glowing with records

Of your colored past

Is

It?

To feel like you are that woman

That kind

Of woman

Other women cannot

Forgive

And past lovers cannot

Forget

You

Have become

The ‘other woman’

The first…

The only…

Belonging to no one

To everyone

You

Are the whore’s shame

The virgin’s guilty pleasure

And you wash

And wash

And wash

That scarlet letter

But it never fades

You

Have only scraped yourself

Raw

And it hurts

Like a private hell

Where you burn in isolation

No neighboring screams

To comfort you

Only deep deep rouge

Running

Into reopened scars

Is

It?

Some

Woman thing?
