Illo Friday: Stitch

The Womb

I have a 3-inched stitch
from below my navel running down
for six years now.

this dark brown, reddish thick skin line
is a symbol, a reminder,
of the reason why i try so hard -

breaking my bones
stretching my veins
and splitting time in nano-seconds

and i would trade everything

just to see -
that astonished stare
ice melting smile
running to me.

and to feel -
that heartskipping warmth
of those arms wrapped around me.

and to hear -
the words that will shatter all walls
stop all the wars in the world..

"i love you, mommy"

note: as of the moment of posting, flickr was down so the image was temporarily stored somewhere else. soon as flickr is up, the image will be transfered there.
