Skin Stories

Kaleidoscopic ink graces your flesh
the story of a girl growing, tales of days past.
I’ve never asked about your tattoos, preferring for you
to reveal their insights in some profound way.
The small of your back proclaiming
that you aren’t anybody’s star is more than enough
for my soul to recognize you as one all the same.
Despite their decorative nature, your skin stories
have never held more appeal than any other aspect
for you are more than the sum of your pieces.
