Why did you hide your scars?
I really, truly didn't care.
Loved you for who you were,
not for what you thought you were.

You hid your scars
away from me,
covering them well.
Did I flinch,
when I broke the spell?
You know I didn't,
for I stayed the course,
driven by Love's force.

I kissed your body,
caressed it too -
because i was in love with you.
Traced my fingers through knotted flesh,
I didn't care, I saw perfection -
did you?
