Melanin

Standard
Melanin

I have so many freckles;

moles

On my body

potential little cancers,

threatening to eat away at me.

 

I can only count the front-

Yet even if you offered

to count them;

connect them as ephelidic constellations,

I’d never know the true total.

 

There are so many

I’ll never show you

Each one represents a secret

A shame, a regret

A love, a hate

Somethings better

Left forgotten.
