This crimson tell
I know too well
Crawls quick
Across my chest
It always starts
With a skipping heart
Stripping secrets from meat
Just to surface my flesh
Too powdery a word
For this all too human
Trait disturbed
Sanguine anxieties
Splattered and splayed
On my neck and face
I cannot escape it
This chronic tell
I know so well
Will color me true
Until my grave

  1. Delicious blush

    • Thank you. ☺️ I must admit that for a long time I found my chronic blushing quite annoying, but I am learning to just live with it…it keeps me honest. And I am hiding my true emotions less and less anyway, why not let my skin proudly display those emotions?
