Matador by Ashley Thompson

Tattoo by Mckell Hadlock
You are
tattooed on my heart.
Each letter of your name,
stinging sharp.
The sting will fade,
yet, there you'll remain—
That mark that I let you make—
That scar that will always ache—
My heart, never the same—
Not since you came
and wrote
your name.
