I pick at the skin on my thumb,
pulling bits of flesh off and revealing more underneath.
Like pulling a thread that’s unraveled from a sweater.
The more I pull, the more that comes.
Except I don’t have any scissors to cut the thread.
and my hands are too weak to detach it.
So instead I just keep tugging, watching the sweater come apart in my hands;
skin peeling back to reveal muscle and bone.
Almost impressive, how much damage is done from just one thread.Recommend0 Simily SnapsPublished in
