on the inside

tear at me, gouge and rip,
scrape whole slabs of
flesh away from my body,
cripple me in every
physical way,
it will be nothing compared
to the mental clawing and
cutting and chopping and
slashing I have endured,

it’s not that I won’t feel
your attack
it’s that I won’t react in
the way you expect

the most brutal scars
are found on the inside
